Many young talented researchers are working at Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre (DHRTC) to create valuable results in the Danish part of the North Sea. This month our young Researcher in focus is Drude Hundevadt from the Risk modelling group.
Drude is working on her PhD project: Accelerated probabilistic response modelling and analysis. The project focuses on methods for calculating structural reliability for existing platforms in the North Sea.
In order to facilitate life extension of the ageing structures in the North Sea it is of significant interest to see if alternatives to traditional modelling and analysis schemes can be identified which are efficient enough and yet sufficiently precise to ensure their practical relevance.
“The purpose of the project is to further develop the models within probabilistic response of structures. Based on classical methods (such as Monte Carlo Simulations and First Order Reliability Methods) and modern alternatives I will examine the possibilities for developing a practically applicable computational model."
