WEBINAR: Added resistance in waves


WEBINAR: Sea-keeping and added resistance calculation

Date: Friday, Nov. 11th, 2022

Time: 10:00 – 11:00

Place: Microsoft Teams

Registration: by accepting Outlook meeting invitation; open to all SFI Smart Maritime partners

Organiser: SINTEF Ocean



When vessels operate under real sea conditions, ship resistance and thus, emissions, increase. From the design phase, added resistance due to waves must be computed and added to the calm water resistance to optimize the vessels. With the advances in computational methods, numerical high-resolution simulations can be carried out to overcome the limitations of the current standards of practice. The ongoing research project IPIRIS, a spin-off of SFI Smart Maritime, is working on seakeeping- and added resistance tools, coupling high resolution modelling techniques with efficient wave modelling to evaluate the added resistance problem in realistic sea states in more detail.
