Announcements CD-adapco will host The Virtual Wave Basin CFD simulation seminar on May 24th in Houston, Texas.

Attend this seminar and you'll discover how Naval Architects at companies such as Alan C McClure Associates (ACMA), a major Drilling Contractor and others, have added STAR-CCM+ - leading flow and thermal simulation tool (or CFD) - to their toolkit, and how it is helping them to answer both design and operational questions.

Sponsor CFD Review

Are you a Naval Architect working in the marine or offshore industry?
Are you frustrated by solely relying on physical testing and empirical methods?
Do you have to answer questions such as:

  • how to modify bilge keels to prevent excessive vessel rolling?
  • optimal thruster positioning?
  • need accurate hull drag prediction for transportation of a Semi-Submersible?
  • understand wave slam loads and enhancement before going to the tank?

Guest Speakers:

Professor Milovan Peric's extensive experience includes the Hamburg Shipbuilding Institute. Today, he is the Director of Technology at CD-adapco, where he works directly with clients and partners including all major Certification Agencies and OEMs.

Donald Burris, P.E - is a skilled Naval Architect and hydrodynamacist who has been at ACMA for 3 years, and has been using CFD as part of his toolkit for the past 2 years.  Donald is a licensed  Professional Engineer in Texas.  He is also involved in the industry through active membership in SNAME, serving as vice-chairman of the society delegation to the  OTC Program Committee.

Harris Reynolds from Diamond Offshore Drilling will discuss their use of CFD to improve the roll dampening of Clipper (a Drillship), by studying various anti-roll mechanisms, and then verifying the CFD results with scale model tests at Texas A&M University.
