CFD in the Marine & Offshore Design Process

Are you involved in the design or operation of offshore vessels or platforms? Or perhaps you would like to understand how you can reduce the need for towing tank testing by using CFD, or explore new, advanced methods for using CFD to design energy efficient vessels? If so, we are holding an educational seminar you shouldn't miss.

Attend this seminar and learn more about the use of simulation to understand, improve or mitigate:

  • Vortex Induced Motion (VIM)
  • Slam loads, air gap and green water
  • Hull resistance
  • Scale-up from model to full scale
  • Hull drag and topside wind loads
  • Technical Safety
  • Process equipment design and troubleshooting

Offshore Floating Platforms are required to survive extreme environments like large waves and hurricane force winds over several decades of operation. Historically, designers have relied on a combination of Potential Flow codes, physical tests and experience. While each of these brings value to the design process, gaps and uncertainties remain.

Advances in software and hardware technology, as well as success in validating CFD methods, mean companies routinely applying CFD or the Virtual Wave Basin in projects enable them to deliver a better product with reduced risks and uncertainties.

If you’re interested in discovering more about what’s involved in performing such analyses, the seminar will feature both live demonstrations of STAR-CCM+® and an opportunity to try it yourself with a hands-on session. It's an educational event you don't want to miss.
