Marine 2019

Challenging applications in marine engineering

The eight Conference on Computational Methods in Marine Engineering (Marine 2019) was recently hosted by Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. This conference is a meeting place for researchers developing computational methods and scientists and engineers focusing on challenging applications in marine engineering. Researchers from SSPA, together with some of our research partners, presented interesting papers.

Over 150 presentations were performed by experts and researchers during this three-days event. Our research was presented in four papers: 

  • Numerical Friction Lines for CFD Based Form Factor Determination Method, written by Kadir Burak Korkmaz and Sofia Werner from SSPA and Rickard Bensow from Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology.
  • Efficient time domain simulation of waves, written by Olov Lundbäck from SSPA.
  • Design of Low Drag-to-Power Ratio Hydrokinetic Turbine, written by Alex A. Shiri and Jan Hallander from SSPA and Neil Laughlin from Minesto.
  • Prediction of Parametric Rolling for a Container Ship in Regular and Irregular Waves Using a Fully Nonlinear Time Domain Potential Flow Method, written by Francesco Coslovich and Carl-Erik Janson from Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences at Chalmers University of Technology and Martin Kjellberg from SSPA.

- “This event was a very good opportunity for us to exchange the latest research results and discuss with other experts how the scientific challenges can be related to applications that can support the maritime industry”, says Ph.D. Sofia Werner, Manager Strategic Research Hydrodynamics at SSPA.

At the end of the conference, some of the delegates was invited to visit SSPA´s facility the Towing Tank.

About the conference

The Eight International Conference on Computational Methods in Marine Engineering was organised by Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, on May 13-15, 2019. The conference is one of the Thematic Conferences of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) and a Special Interest Conference of the International Association for Computational Mechanics (IACM). It is also supported by other scientific organizations in Europe and worldwide. You find all papers presented in EbookMarine2019
