Dynamics of Marine Barriers

Protection of sensitive marine installations and infrastructure is critical in today's geo-political climate. The Center for Ocean Engineering worked with HALO Maritime Defense Systems to analyze the response of the floating barrier to high velocity vessel impacts. Engineers used a combination of analytical and physical models along with field testing to simulate various impact events to optimize the system response and insure structural integrity.  For more information, contact Dr. Jud DeCew.
