OVERVIEW

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is becoming more and more attractive in the marne indusstry, 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, fundamentaal for the successfull applicability of these approaches to design and analysis problems

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Introduction to the latest approaches (theoretical basis and numerical implementations) for the numerical solution of the typical problems related to the Naval Architecture (propulsion, hull resistance, cavitation). Development of simple numerical tools and application of high-fidelity solvers (RANSE) in order to identify their applicability to design problems, possible limitations and fields of applicability.

TEACHING METHODS

Oral lessons and computer lab.
