Currently, much research is focused on the possibility to use wind propulsion to reduce the green-house gas emissions from shipping. Two master thesis projects in this field are jointly supervised by both Chalmers and SSPA. “Investigation on a harvesting propeller for wind propelled vessels” and “CFD investigation of wind powered ships under extreme condition”.
Together with Chalmers University Technology, SSPA announces two proposals of Master thesis projects. The current thesis projects that are available are “High-performance sailing: Fluid Structure Interaction of hydrofoils” and “CFD modelling of floating object’s motion decay”. The projects start in January 2021.
