The project concerns further development of an in-house fully nonlinear unsteady method for analysis of resistance and ship motions in waves. A development towards analysis of wave energy converters is included.
A new area that will be included is analysis of structural response due to slamming loads (fluid structure interaction)
The research is relevant for wave resistance, interaction between sea and ship in terms of wave loads and ship motions, and energy efficiency as well as input for fatigue and ultimate stress analysis. The impact of speed reduction can be studied. This is important for both energy efficiency (Eco-driving) and for the structural loads.
