Functie omschrijving

Curved Pulling Operations of Nearshore Pipelines Are you a Civil- or Offshore & Dredging Engineering MSc student or graduate looking for a temporary position? Are you interested in a job that combines both practical and theoretical work, and is carried out within the international environment? Would you be interested in the topic of curved pulling operations of nearshore pipelines? Then you might be the one we are looking for to continue this research within the Research & Development team! Due to the often existing subsea infrastructure or seabed conditions, engineers are forced to design new nearshore pipeline trajectories that are not always in a straight line anymore. Since subsea tie-in operations are often complex and relatively expensive; alternative methods like pulling pipelines into a curve are worthwhile. Currently, they is gaining knowledge of pipe pull operations into a curved trajectory. An MSc Civil Engineering Graduate thesis focusses on the soil-structure interaction between the sliding pipeline and the seabed. A more thorough understanding of the geotechnical processes that create lateral resistance of the pipeline against the forces applied by the installation vessel is obtained. The main goal is to expand market share into curved pipe pull projects. Besides numerical predictions, they are executing physical tests at their in-house test facility HydroLab. By means of pulling scaled pipelines in a 24-meter long purpose-built test tank; they aim to verify expectations and create opportunities for the future.The thesis of the graduate intern mentioned before is coming to an end. Although the results of the test are promising and in line with the predictions; there are still some questions left unanswered. Are you the one to join the Research & Development team and execute some more tests with this unique test facility? You could think of doing research into operations like pulling a pipeline through a trench, or by means of a heavy pull wire. The complete test set-up
