Jean-François Sigrist, R&D Engineer - DCN Propulsion, France. The numerical simulation of coupled fluid-structure problems has made tremendous progress over the past few years and various numerical techniques have been implemented in order to describe fluid-structure coupling effects (many numerical examples are given in References 3 and 4).

Minyee Jiang - Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock. Dejan Matic - CD-adapco. Submarines become more multi-mission oriented and their mode of operation is more often at the sea’s surface. As such, waves become an impor tant parameter of a submarine’s design and could have a critical impact on its structural integrity. In an effor t to address these new challenges, the Naval Surface Warfare Center at Carderock, recently chose to use CD-adapco’s cutting edge CFD solution to mitigate the risk of damage from surface wave impact.

STAR-CCM+ opens the door to explore innovative medical device designs such as blood pumps.
STAR-CCM+ can be used to design and gain a better understanding of the operating performance of turbomachinery. Shown here is a polyhedral mesh on a turbo-compressor.
Brian Van Lear, Lockheed Martin Company, USA. The US Navy’s MIL-S-901D specification covers shock testing requirements for ship board machinery, equipment, systems, and structures (excluding submarine pressure hull penetrations). The purpose of these requirements is to verify the ability of shipboard installations to withstand shock loadings, which may be incurred during war time service due to the effects of nuclear or conventional weapons.

Office of Naval Research, USA. Dejan Matic, Bill Clark, Ganesh Venkatesan - CD-adapco. The numerical simulation of submarine maneuvering is a challenging problem that has only recently been addressed by technological advances in commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software. In this ar ticle, we demonstrate how CD-adapco’s simulation technology can be applied to accurately predict how a submarine’s motion is driven by hydrodynamic forces, and compare numerical results with experimental data.

Ould el Moctar - Germanischer Lloyd. Germanischer Lloyd is the market leader in the classification of containerships. Every second containership is built according to GL Rules. Devoted to promoting innovation, sustainability and environmental protection, Germanischer Lloyd also covers all other ship types such as tanker, bulker, multi purpose vessels, high speed ferries and cruise ships. The current new building order-book contains more than 1,400 vessels with 28 Mio GT. Marine Special Report: Read more...
Ould el Moctar, Germanischer Lloyd. CD-adapco, a global enterprise offering computationally-based engineering solutions, and the classification society Germanischer Lloyd (GL) have joined forces. The two companies signed a cooperation agreement whereby they will closely work together in the sector of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for marine applications. The future collaboration will comprise of mutual publications, development, validation as well as workshops. Marine Special Report: Read more...
Hans Jørgen Mørch - CFD Marin and Agder University, Norway. Sven Enger, Milovan Perić and Eberhard Schreck - CD-adapco. Lifeboats are an impor tant component of safety measures for the passengers and crew of floating vessels and offshore platforms. They need to be designed so that people on board can be evacuated safely. This requires that: the lifeboat is not damaged during water entry; the lifeboat moves sufficiently far away from the launching point before its own propulsion system is started; and the accelerations experienced by occupants do not exceed a cer tain level over a certain...
