Organizer: Zeus Numerix, IIT Kharagpur
Application Areas: Maritime, Offshore and Ship Hydrodynamics
Special Fields: Numerical Methods
Softwares: CFDExpert Zeus Numerix
Deadlines: May 1, 2008 (registration)
Type of Event: Workshop, International

Zeus Numerix, Mumbai and Indian Institute of Technology,
Kharagpur are jointly organizing a 5 day workshop on
“Computer Aided Engineering for Marine Engineering” at Dept
of Ocean Engg and Naval Architecture IIT Kharagpur. The
workshop and training program is intended for the persons
from R & D Organizations, design and development engineers
from industries and consultants in the marine industry. The
course will also be useful for R&D Managers who wish to
introduce CAE in their organization. Faculty/students from
universities desirous to undertake CAE based investigations
may also find this course useful.

The workshop will have introductory lectures and use of the
corresponding technology in the morning on the following 

   1. Fluid dynamics
   2. Stress analysis
   3. Electromagnetics
   4. Corrosion engineering
   5. Ship dynamics
   6. High Performance Computing

An appropriate lecture on computer aided engineering will be
followed by a demonstration in the afternoon.

The ability to simulate real life problems and scenarios is
the essence of CAE. CAE consists on a suite of software for
each with its own goal. Computational Fluid Dynamics can
simulate motion of ship and predict the drag and help
predict the dynamics of its motion. Computational
electromagnetics can predict the visibility of ship to
radar. Simulation of electrostatics can predict the
corrosion rates and help in reducing it. Computational
structural mechanics helps in predicting the failure of
hulls and optimizing the ship for its weight, etc. On the
whole, CAE helps designers and operators in understanding of
the physical and chemical processes that matter in design,
production and operations of marine vessels.

The present course aims at training the participants in all
these simulation techniques such that participant can plan
for an integrated design process in his organization.
Training in utilization of HPC will enable him to solve
large real life problems.
