Abstract Although road-based freight transport has large external costs, it currently dominates the hinterland cargo transport sector in Europe. An increase of the automation levels of inland cargo vessels could advance their competitiveness, hence unlocking more sustainable inland cargo transport. Moreover, these improvements could pave the way for a potential future paradigm shift towards unmanned inland cargo vessels. Therefore, this study investigates the design of an experimental platform i...

The European Watertruck + project introduced a new fleet of self-propelled inland cargo barges to the European waters, in order to induce more sustainable freight transport in the European hinterland. An augmentation of the automation level of this fleet could further advance their competitiveness and potentially pave the way for unmanned inland cargo vessels. The motion control of such a vessel forms a key component in this envisaged automation chain and benefits from the knowledge of the capab...

Inland vessels play a vital role in inland freight transportation, nevertheless, they currently suffer from the competition by road and rail transport. Therefore, augmenting their motion control - with the future possibility of unmanned barges in mind - could increase their competitiveness and induce a paradigm shift in the inland freight transport sector. However, there has been relatively little analysis of the manoeuvring characteristics of small inland vessels or self-propelled barges. Conse...

Abstract This paper identifies the asymmetric steering characteristics of a Wave Adaptive Modular Vessel (WAM-V) deployed as an Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV). Differentially steered propellers create a virtual rudder movement without explicitly inducing lateral rudder forces. However, a rotating propeller will generate a small lateral force, depending on its rotational direction and speed, also known as propeller walk. The WAM-V USV uses two similar propellers to manoeuvre, hence the propeller w...

Precise prediction of the lifetime of rolling element bearings is a crucial step towards a reliable design of many rotating machines. For bearings subjected to highly varying loads, recent research emphasises a strong reduction of the actual bearing lifetime w.r.t. the classically calculated bearing lifetime. This paper experimentally analyses the influence of external dynamic loads on the lifetime of rolling element bearings. A novel bearing test rig is introduced. The test rig is able to apply...

A damping device, consisting of an annular tail-pipe, has been developed. It is applicable in situations wherein acoustic damping is required in combination with low flow resistance. The device consists of a central tube surrounded by a narrow slit. The central tube has an acoustic mass which impedance increases with frequency while the slit resistance remains constant. When the frequency has been increased sufficiently, a considerable part of the acoustic flow passes through the slit where it w...
