Module overview

This module extends the fundamentals of fluid mechanics in the context of naval architecture and ocean engineering including water waves and the fluid loading and motion of maritime structures and vessels in waves. Students will assess the concepts of added mass, wave forces, ship roll and seakeeping by developing the conceptual, mathematical, and computational techniques needed for their evaluation. There are two assignments which integrate added mass, roll damping and seakeeping response through numerical and experimental applications to a real floating vessel.
