NEW PUBLICATION ON NOISE MEASUREMENTS OF A CAVITATING PROPELLER

Read our latest publication on measurement of underwater radiated noise, written in collaboration with other research institutes from around the world.Available to download for the next 50 days! ABSTRACT Mitigation of shipping noise is a topical issue in marine engineering because of the dramatic increase in the levels of anthropogenic underwater noise and its impact

HOW IS HUMAN SOUND AFFECTING SEALIFE?

BBC World Service | CrowdScience investigates how human activity on the waves is affecting life below them. In this podcast several scientists give their point of view. Listen to MARIN's Frans Hendrik Lafeber who is focussing on measuring underwater radiated noise caused by shipping and who explains how new ship designs might quieten things down.https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3cszv5x

STUDY WAVE IMPACTS AT DIFFERENT CONDITIONS WITH THE ATMOSPHERE

Welcome in our Atmosphere: a custom built 12.5 m long, 0.6 m wide and 1.2 m tall flume tank with a heavy, instrumented impact wall to study wave impacts at different conditions. Using a precise piston-type wave generator, we can create diverse kinds of waves in the whole range of conditions and record dynamic pressures

UNMANNED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY: THE MAUV

The Unmanned Systems Technology magazine (June/July 2020) looked at the latest steps MARIN has taken to test methods of subsea vehicle autonomy and control.MARIN has for a long time developed autonomous test and demonstration platforms to find better ways of providing independent expertise and scientific consultation to maritime industries. Its newest vehicle, the mAUV (modular

FOLLOW-UP EXAMINATION OF CONTAINER LOSS WADDEN

WAGENINGEN, 26 JUNE 2020 - In the night of 1 to 2 January 2019, the large container ship MSC Zoe sails in a southwesterly storm in the southern shipping route above the Dutch Wadden. As a result, the ship loses 345 containers, which leads to major pollution of the sea and the Wadden Islands. The

FROM VISION TO USER REQUIREMENTS

Capturing your future bridge concept in user requirements In many large tender processes it is vital to have well-defined User Requirements which reflect the need for the customer unambiguously to get the best value for money. Capturing ship bridge functionality and design in requirements is an ultimate challenge since it covers a huge variation of

COLLISION AVOIDANCE TESTBED

MARIN invites classification societies, product developers, research institutes, ship operators and maritime training institutes to participate in a new initiative: a Joint Industry Project to develop a broadly accepted, standard methodology for the thorough testing and validation of collision avoidance algorithms and systems. Last year the Dutch led Autonomous Shipping JIP (Joint Industry Project) has
