The course will provide a general introduction on theoretical fluid-dynamics and CFD topics, followed by specific maritime applications of CFD, such as for ship resistance and performance, cavitation and pressure pulses, Energy Saving Devices
(ESDs), Anti Roll Tanks (ART), manoeuvring, current and wind loads, VIM & VIV, wave impacts, motions of floating structures. Attention will be given to boundary
conditions, calculation setup and numerical settings, geometry manipulation, quality aspects and difficulties in grid generation, calculation control & post-processing and verification and validation. Emerging techniques in CFD and coupling of CFD with other tools will be addressed as well. Each day will be
concluded with practical CFD exercises.
All topics addressed in this course are relevant for the use of any state-of-the-art viscous-flow CFD code and insight into the validity of your CFD results. The team of teachers and instructors consists of MARIN specialists in the relevant fields.
This course is intended for both existing professional staff and newcomers in the maritime industry. Participants should have at least a Masters degree (MSc.) in naval architecture, ocean engineering, equivalent education or experience.
