• Behavior of concrete modular multi-purpose floating structures 

      Jiang, Dongqi; Tan, Kiang Hwee; Dai, Jian; Ang, Kok Keng; Nguyen, Huu Phu (Ocean Engineering;Volume 229, 1 June 2021, 108971, Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-04-21)
      Large floating structures such as platforms, breakwaters and piers, have been constructed in many countries in coastal areas in a bid to increase land space. Due to construction ease and operational flexibility, these ...
    • Effect of modelling inhomogeneous wave conditions on structural responses of a very long floating bridge 

      Dai, Jian; Stefanakos, Christos; Leira, Bernt Johan; Alsos, Hagbart Skage (Journal of Marine Science and Engineering;volume 9, issue 5, Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-05-19)
      Floating bridges are suitable for connecting land parcels separated by wide and deep waterbodies. However, when the span of the crossing becomes very long, the water environment exhibits inhomogeneities which introduce ...
    • Effect of wave-current interaction on a long fjord-crossing floating pontoon bridge 

      Dai, Jian; Abrahamsen, Bjørn Christian; Hansen Viuff, Thomas; Leira, Bernt Johan (Engineering structures;Volume 266, 1 September 2022, 114549, Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022-06-20)
      Fjord-crossing floating bridges are sophisticated structures subjected to complex environmental loadings including combined action of wave and current. However, the effect of wave-current action is often neglected in a ...
    • Investigation of inhomogeneous wave conditions in Sulafjorden 

      Stefanakos, Christos; Dai, Jian; Leira, Bernt Johan (Proceedings of Annual International Ocean (Offshore) and Polar Engineering Conference;The Proceedings of the 31st (2021) International Ocean and Polar Engineering Conference, Chapter; Peer reviewed; Conference object; Journal article, 2021)
      Complex fjord topography (bathymetry and coastline) may differentiate significantly wave conditions not only compared with the offshore ones but in the vicinity of few tens of meters. In the present work, possible ...
    • Mechanical behaviour and the modelling of PVC foam 

      Yosufzai, Mojtaba; Westbye, Eirik (MABY;2022, Master thesis, 2022)
      Foam materials are widely applied in many industrial fields due to their superior characteristics regarding high strength to weight ratio. Additionally, they may offer high toleration to damage and exceptional energy ...
    • Parametric study and dynamic response analysis of three single curved discrete pontoon floating bridges 

      Wan, Ling; Dai, Jian; Jiang, Dongqi; Ang, Kok Keng (Ships and Offshore Structures;, Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-06-26)
      In this paper, three curved floating bridge concepts with a uniform span of 500 m and different radii of curvature are proposed for the crossing of the coastal waters in Singapore. The bridge girder is supported by 4 ...
    • Research and development in connector systems for very large floating structures 

      Jiang, Dongqi; Tan, Kiang Hwee; Wang, Chien Ming; Dai, Jian (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      In recent years, Very Large Floating Structures (VLFS) technology has attracted much attention for its sustainable and eco-friendly approach in creating land from the sea. Owing to the massive size, VLFS are usually ...
