Innovative vortex-induced vibration test rig launched
SINTEF has designed and manufactured the test rig that mainly will be used for full scale vortex-induced vibrations (VIV) testing of risers and other type of cylindrical structures.
Preventing hurricanes using air bubbles
Many people have tried to find ways of preventing hurricanes before they make landfall, resulting in the loss of human lives. Norwegian researchers believe that the answer lies in cold bubbles.
Testing under way for the world's first autonomous container vessel
Model tests of the world's first battery-driven, autonomous container vessel are currently under way in the Ship Model Tank at SINTEF Ocean. The vessel will be ready for launch in eighteen months time.
Planning the world’s longest floating bridge
The floating bridge spanning Bjørna Fjord is unique in a global context, and so advanced in terms of its technology that even the researchers working on the project have really been put to the test.
