dTHOR will consolidate end-users military operational requirements based on improved battle damage and structural integrity assessment, reduced hydro-acoustic signatures, and more accurate operation of weapon systems.
Next generation of ship structural health monitoring system
The dTHOR consortium, coordinated by SINTEF AS, proposes to develop the next generation of a predictive Ship Structural Health Monitoring (SSHM) system based on innovative utilization of sensor measurement and hybrid analysis modelling enabling digital twins with high physical realism.
Also, the intention behind the dTHOR project is to enable:
- A holistic approach to complete lifecycle management from design to decommissioning
- An effective transition from traditional time-based to condition-based maintenance
- Increased operational availability and increased levels of safety
- Continuous optimization of operational performance in peace time and wat time/crisis situations
- Game-changing speed of knowledge transfer between Research, Innovation, Design and Operations
The work of dTHOR is structured around four blocks:
- Enabling Technologies
- Application Technologies
- Requirements and Specifications
- Use Cases and Technology demonstrator
Improvement and modernization of the European digital capabilities in the naval sector
By developing a highly efficient, accurate and reliable ship’s health monitoring system based on commonly agreed framework and publicly available standards, the dTHOR consortium is looking towards the improvement and modernization of the European digital capabilities in the naval sector.
The “Digital Ship Structural Health Monitoring” (dTHOR) project was selected among the EDF 2021 European Projects funded by the European Commission, with a duration of three years.
