FLOWTECH International arrange a workshop on ship performance optimization in Shanghai on April 20. It's preceded by a two days SHIPFLOW training course on April 18-19. Below follows further information about the content and how to register.

Workshop on ship performance

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.

Participation in the workshop is free but registration is required. The number of seats are limited.

This is an informative session you do not want to miss.

Workshop Program

  • 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


Shanghai, April 18-19

The two day training gives an introduction to the SHIPFLOW system. It will cover all parts of SHIPFLOW from the basic potential flow method XPAN and the RANS solver XCHAP. The new flow solver MOTIONS for ship motion in waves will also be covered.

This training is suitable for you who are new to the SHIPFLOW system or for those that wants a systematic presentation of the complete system.

The training contains presentation by FLOWTECH staff and hands-on exercises.

Training Program

Day 1. Monday April 18

  • 09:30 – 12:00. Overview
  • 12:00 - 13:00. Lunch
  • 13:00 - 16:00. Geometry and XPAN

Day 2. Tuesday April 19

  • 09:30 – 12:00. MOTIONS
