Duration: 30 minutes + 15 minutes for Q&A
Most of ship energy is spent for moving ship from one place to another, and hydrodynamics is playing the most important role in that respect – as much as 50 – 95 % of all energy used in ship is spent for propulsion.
Highest potential for upgrading ship hydrodynamics into today’s level is naturally in older ships designed few years ago. Development in ship hull optimization has been rapid in present years thanks to increased computational power available and improved software quality. A major part of today’s ship hull, appendage and propulsion optimization can be done using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations in big computer clusters, only the final solution would be necessary to test in a model basin.
