Are you a Naval Architect working in the marine or
Are you frustrated by solely relying on physical
testing and empirical methods?
Do you have to answer questions such as:
- how to modify bilge keels to prevent
excessive vessel rolling?
- optimal thruster positioning?
- need accurate hull drag prediction for
transportation of a Semi-Submersible?
- understand wave slam loads and enhancement
before going to the tank?
this seminar and you will discover how Naval Architects
from companies like Alan C. McClure Associates (ACMA), a
major Drilling Contractor and others, have added STAR-CCM+ -
the leading flow and thermal simulation tool (CFD) - to
their toolkit, and how it is helping them to answer both
design and operational questions.
