measurement & control

KEY-enabling TECHNOLOGY

Measurement and analysis are essential for acquiring knowledge from numerical and experimental studies. This programme provides the tools and techniques needed to gain insight into full-scale and model-scale physics.

SUB PROGRAMMES

waves & flows

Measurements of waves and flows are performed to serve different ambitions of the research programmes. Measurement of spatial wave fields in combination with forces and pressures on the hull (Waves & Impacts) Measurement of wave kinematics (Waves & Impacts) Gather reliable flow and corresponding pressure distribution data for CFD validation Additionally, measuring and controlling water quality is crucial to study the effect of water quality (free and dissolved gas) on cavitation, and wave impacts.

LOADS & BEHAVIOUR

Behaviour of structures is measured in terms of motions, vibrations, deformations, cavitation and noise. Loads on structures in terms of forces, moments and pressures are a result of environmental factors and behaviour of the structural parts. This subprogramme focuses on the improvement of measurement tools and techniques.

HYBRID SOLUTIONS

Hybrid measurement systems—combining various technologies—can provide added value to results through synergy between their components. A well-known application is the combination of GPS and inertial sensor data for navigation purposes. Herein sensor fusion and real-time analysis play a dominant role.

BIG DATA (DATA SCIENCE)

Continuously improving computational power, number of sensor and measurement technology, lead to bigger, better and richer datasets (or Big Data) at MARIN and its clients. Big Data is rapidly evolving into both a scientific and operational field, including its own set of tools, methodologies and applications in scientific and industrial challenges. Therefore, Data Science (the scientific methods to extract knowledge from these datasets) and eScience (the IT infrastructure for data science) are becoming increasingly important for MARIN.

MEASUREMENT QUALITY

This sub-programme is focused on quantifying the quality of the measurement and analysis process. Uncertainties of calibrations, measurement signal characteristics and ambient conditions will be determined and quality control ensures that these values will be attained.

STEREO PARTICLE IMAGE VELOCIMETRY
PIV is an advanced, optical measuring technique for obtaining 3D velocity information in a plane. The flow measurement with PIV is based on the measurements of the displacement (Δx) of a particle in a target plane between two successive light pulses with time delay (Δt). The flow is seeded with particles and the target plane is illuminated with a laser light sheet. Then the particle positions are recorded by two digital cameras.
