Online Hydroelasticity of Ship and Offshore
Structure Training


Study of ship hydro elasticity for large vessels is one of the major topic since one decade. In comparison to small or moderately big vessels, container ships are large in size. Therefore, not only
they are more flexible in nature, but at the same time the natural frequency of the structures falls in the range of the encounter frequencies which commonly occur in regular ocean. These can cause significant damage to the hull due to springing, whipping etc. The same can be true for moderately
large high speed vessels also. On the other hand, assuming the ship hull to be rigid may lead to overestimation of the hydrodynamic loads or pressure on the structure which can further result in an
over conservative design. Therefore, a proper prediction of the wave induced loads and the
corresponding response of the vessel are extremely important for designing and scantling calculation for large vessels.


Engineers and scientists involved in the design of ships and ship systems. Personnel from ship management companies, oil companies, classification societies and ship builders will benefit from attending this course. The course is innovative in both content & structure with a careful balance of
theory & practice.

CV of Lecturer

Dr. Ranadev Datta is now an assistant professor in the department of Ocean Engineering Naval Architect, Indian Institute of technology Kharagpur, India. He did his PhD in the same department in Numerical Ship and Offshore Hydrodynamics. He worked in IST Lisbon, during 2009 to 2012.

The primary research interest of Dr. Ranadev Datta is related to ship and offshore structure seakeeping, Hydroelasticity. He developed a higher order 3D time domain panel method to solve
ship motion problems during his graduation. Presently, his research area includes hydroelasticity, nonlinear fluid structure interaction problem, computational geometry etc.

He is now involved in a project supported by the Naval Research Board where they are trying to solve hydroelasticity problem by coupling the boundary element method (BEM) and finite
element method (FEM) in time domain. Also working on the nonlinear wave- structure interaction problem; the focus is to find an efficient way to couple the classical potential flow method with popular CFD solvers; so that the local phenomenon such as deck wetness/ slamming can be modelled using CFD.

Dr. Ranadev Datta has worked on several industries related projects. He has helped IRS (International register forshipping) to develop their classification rule book. He also developed
stability software for jack up Rigs with Green Palm Marine Consultancy. Apart from that, he did many small scale routine consultancy type project as well.

Apart from his work related to numerical ship and offshore structure hydrodynamics, he is also keen in developing an automated meshing engine for ship like structure using the key concept of computational geometry.

Dr. Datta has several publications in many reputed international journals and conferences such as Journal of Fluids and Structures, Journal of Ship Research, Symposium of Numerical
Ship Hydrodynamics etc.
