Online Marine Technology Training

About The Course

Marine CFD is one of the more sought after topics in the computational industry. Traditionally, the marine industry has depended on towing tank and model testing for ship performance evaluation. Nowadays, the rise of CFD has made virtual tank possible and save a lot of money for the ship industry. The study of flow around ships, especially the wake behind the ship or the resistance of a various types of vessels is of great interest to the marine community and CFD researchers equally. In this course, we take a look at the details of CFD modelling with emphasis on the flow around ships. This course will be of use to the marine engineers, CFD enthusiasts and Naval Architects who need a professional experience in this topic.

Who should attend?

The course is intended for Engineers, Operations managers, Fabricators, Applied Scientists, and Technologists interested in ship design.
