Efficient operations using numerical methods

by Kourosh Koushan: Senior Adviser - Ships and Ocean Structures,  SINTEF Ocean and Research Scientist, SFI Smart Maritime WP2

Marine operations performed by offshore vessels become increasingly challenging. In order to avoid most unfavourable situations, one needs accurate and reliable data regarding behaviour of propulsors under realistic operation conditions. Computational Fluid Dynamics can be used to study the hydrodynamic performance of different type of propulsors including azimuth thrusters and tunnel thrusters. The impact of cavitation on tunnel propellers is also addressed. The studies illustrate the importance of dynamic effects associated with propulsor motions, unsteady inflow on propulsor, and interaction phenomena.

Defining the zero emission cruiseliner

by  Anders Valland: Research Manager - Energy and Transport, SINTEF Ocean and Vice-director, SFI Smart Maritime.

The seminar will present concepts and solutions for future zero emissions cruise vessels, based on the research in the SFI Smart Maritime center. Cases will be presented on solutions for new hulls, propulsion, energy production and alternative fuels.
