Computational and Experimental Marine Hydrodynamics Conference

RINA is presenting the International Conference on Computational & Experimental Marine Hydrodynamics in Chennai, India, 3rd to 4th December 2014.

Marine hydrodynamics deals with flow around marine vehicles, such as surface ships, submarines, AUVs and ROVs, and offshore structures, both fixed and floating ones.

Some of the important topics are marine vehicle resistance and propulsion, controllability, wave loads, wave induced motions, and energy and ecology considerations. Correct understanding and application of hydrodynamics on marine vehicles and structures are vital in their design and operation.

Computational methods in marine hydrodynamic problems are applied to solve a wide range of maritime applications. Significant progress has been made towards the development of the 'numerical towing tank' and 'virtual basin or cavitation tunnel'.

Research and development work is still ongoing to enhance their stability, accuracy, computational speed and its integration into the overall design process. While the computational hydrodynamics can provide important insights into physical flow characteristics and offers an economic way to investigate a range of design options, it may still lack the accuracy to match results obtained in real-life experiments. This obviously points to the fact that the computational methods do not replace the experiments completely.

The aim of the conference and the pre-conference workshop is to provide a venue for disseminating recent advances made in computational and experimental marine hydrodynamics and explore outstanding and frontier problems in marine hydrodynamics for further research and applications.

Conference Themes - Papers are invited on the following topics:

  • Computational techniques in marine hydrodynamics
  • Experimental ship hydrodynamics
  • Marine and coastal hydrodynamics
  • Coupled CFD and structural analysis
  • Underwater vehicles and marine robotics
  • Seakeeping and control of ships and platforms
