Lifetime of OWT monopile by understanding the FATigue-CORrosion

Fatigue and lifetime analysis - Hasan Saeed

The objective of the project is to develop a qualitative and quantitative understanding of the mechanisms of corrosion fatigue. The project focuses on offshore monopiles and the potential consequences of flaws in their corrosion protection system. Corrosion-fatigue experiments will be performed and complemented with finite element simulations of fatigue cracks starting from corrosion pits. This fundamental understanding will be transformed into guidelines for the estimation of the remaining fatigue life of monopile structures.
