Predicting Underwater Noise due to Offshore Pile Driving
Institute of Structural Analysis (LUH/ISD)
The Institute of Structural Analysis of the Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) has been founded on January 15, 2005 – emanating from the former Curt-Risch-Institut für Dynamik, Schall- und Messtechnik. ISD concentrates its research activities on the areas of dynamics and composites. Within the field of dynamics, typical load-carrying structures of civil engineering as well as support structures of offshore wind turbines are of vital importance. Additionally, research activities in the field of underwater acoustics have been constantly extended since 2000.
Major fields of research in dynamics are
- System identification
- Load identification using measured system responses
- Model validation, numerical simulations and optimization for offshore wind turbines
- Holistic modeling and probabilistic safety assessment for offshore wind turbines
- Early damage detection of support structure and rotor blades for offshore wind turbines
- Structural health monitoring
- Active vibration control
- Underwater sound propagation and mitigation concepts
- Optimization of bubble curtains
- Optimization of ram procedure for offshore wind turbines
- Serviceability and load-bearing capacity of building constructions under dynamic loads
