Workshop on ship performance

 Seoul, Korea April 14, 2016

CFD applications

In this workshop we will demonstrate how Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can be used to optimize the ship performance. The first part of the workshop will cover computation of ship motions and added resistance in waves, and the second part will cover automatic shape optimization for minimum delivered power. The presenters will show examples of these applications and discuss how it can be implemented in the design process using the new efficient techniques in SHIPFLOW 6.


  • 10:00 – 12:00. Section I. Seakeeping
    • An introduction to seakeeping and SHIPFLOW MOTIONS theory and numerical method
    • Validations and examples on calm water, regular and irregular wave applications
  • 12:00 – 13:00. Lunch
  • 13:00 – 15:00. Section II. Performance optimization
    • An introduction to performance optimization with SHIPFLOW 6.
    • Application examples:
      • Automatic shape optimizations for minimum delivered power.
      • Effects of resistance and propeller efficiency.
      • Scale effects.
      • Propeller geometry.
      • Energy Saving Devices.
  • 15:00. Q&A session for SHIPFLOW users
