SHIPFLOW MOTIONS seminar and training

This is a seminar for you who wants to learn more about computing ship motions in waves and added resistance with SHIPFLOW MOTIONS. It’s a one day seminar that will cover applications, theory and hand-on exercises. Previous experience from SHIPFLOW is not required.

Date: Wednesday February 3, 2016, 09:00 – 16:30
Place: Flowtech (SSPA building), Chalmers Tvärgata 10, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Register to or call +4631410506. The number of seats are limited.

SHIPFLOW MOTIONS is a time accurate fully non-linear boundary element method which can be used to compute ship motions and added resistance in regular and irregular waves as well as wave resistance, sinkage and trim in calm water. We believe that the method will be a useful tool for ship designers, with better accuracy than traditional potential flow methods while at the same time being faster than the available RANS methods. The first version of SHIPFLOW MOTIONS was released with SHIPFLOW 6 in June 2015.
