Pål Takle Bore is 25 years old, born and raised in the city of Stavanger, Norway, and holds a Master of Science degree in marine technology from NTNU with specialization in hydrodynamics and marine structures. We are looking foward to his contributions to the EXPOSED centre!

The topic for his PhD is related to “exposed aquaculture”. The plan is to investigate hydrodynamic loads, load effects, structural resistance and reliability by performing advanced nonlinear analyses in time domain and, if possible, validate this against experimental results. This will contribute to a better understanding of the governing physical load phenomena relevant for an exposed aquaculture structure and the resulting structural response. Based the results, the goal is to develop rational and knowledge-based design criteria for main components of fish farm structures to be used in an industry expanding toward more exposed locations.
