OVERVIEW

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is becoming more and more attractive in the marine industry, as a complementary tool to usual model and full scale measurements. A deep knowledge of the theoretical basis of each approach, their limitations, the applicability fields and the quality of the results is, consequently, fundamental for the successful applicability of these approaches to design and analysis problems.  

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is intended to provide students with the basis of the most advanced numerical techniques adopted for the solution of the hydrodynamic problems related to naval architecture. The theoretical background of each proposed methodology, with its field of application and its limits, is presented together with hands-on examples.

Teaching methods

Oral lessons and computer lab.
