Time domain vessel response simulations in calm water and in waves​

  • Vessel response simulations of ships including propulsors with variable heading and speed (6 degrees of freedom) in both calm water and in a seaway where the ships are exposed to waves, wind and ocean currents. 
  • A unified formulation of the hydrodynamics that links seakeeping and manoeuvring into one simulation code. 
  • CFD is used to analyse free running manoeuvres like zigzag and turning circle manoeuvres defined by IMO. 
  • With realistic inflow conditions to the propeller, rudder the hull interaction effects can be studied.
  • Different propulsion configurations could
