Impact sur le pont mouillé d’un navire SWATH pour la maintenance des éoliennes offshore

Abstract : The aim of this PhD thesis is to develop simplified models about hydrodynamic impact (slamming) on the wet deck of a SWATH vessel for the maintenance of offshore wind turbines. The knowledge of the hydrodynamic loadings that the wet deck is subjected is an essential step in the design of the vessel’s bow. To realise this study we chose a parabolic twodimensional geometry which symbolises the wet deck and a regular Airy wave for the moving free surface. The models developed are based on the Wagner theory which provides relevant results for a low computational time. Two types of impact models have been developed. So-called asymptotic models, because they use a Taylor expansion of the wave profil and non-asymptotic models because they retain the whole shape of the wave. The pressure distributions on the parabolic shape are mainly calculated by the Modified Logvinovich Model (MLM). The results in terms of wetted corrections, pressure fields and hydrodynamic loadings are compared between the two types of models as a function of the wave radius of curvature We also determine the hydrodynamic impact arrangement which produces the highest hydrodynamic loadings by using reference configurations. For non-asymptotic models, the contribution of wave amplitude and phase velocity within hydrodynamic loadings is analysed in details. For non-asymptotic models, we made the study of the spatial and time variations of pressure fields computed with the linearized Bernoulli equation. We also compared the results of composite theory (COMP) to MLM theory and their consequences on hydrodynamic loadings. Finally, in order to get a basis of comparison for these regular Airy wave impact models, we implemented a numerical model using ABAQUS/CAE software. This model is based on a Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian (CEL) coupling and show good matching with the results of non-asymptotic models in terms of relative errors. In a design office, all those results can be used to help design of the wet deck of a SWATH vessel.
