Hayo Hendrikse


Hayo Hendrikse holds MSc and PhD degrees in Civil Engineering from Delft University of Technology. His PhD work on ice-induced vibrations he executed part-time at NTNU as part of the SAMCoT project. In the past he worked on deep sea mining for IHC Merwede.

Dr. Hendrikse is the chairman of the board of studies of the Master Offshore and Dredging Engineering at TU Delft and a member of the IAHR Ice Research and Engineering Committee.


The main research topic of Dr. Hendrikse is dynamic ice-structure interaction. He currently leads the SHIVER research project which focusses on ice-induced vibrations of offshore wind turbines and is involved in the European FATICE project studying fatigue at low temperatures. Besides this, he works on the slip-joint development for offshore wind representing TU Delft in the SJOQ project and the development of a wave-energy converter at TU Delft.
