CFD in Naval Hydrodynamics, Off-Shore and Wave Modelling with OpenFOAM
1-day event on the use OpenFOAM and the Naval Hydro Pack for CFD simulations in Naval Hydrodynamics, Off-Shore and Wave Modelling with OpenFOAM.
Date: May 23, 2016
Location: Southbank House, Black Prince Road SE1 7SJ, London, United Kingdom

Organizer: Wikki Ltd.
Application Areas: Maritime, Offshore and Ship Hydrodynamics
Softwares: OpenFOAM
Type of Event: Seminar, International

The objective of the User Day is to present the capabilities
of the Naval Hydro Pack produced by Wikki.  The Naval Hydro
Pack extends the capabilities of foam-extend, a community
driven fork of OpenFOAM® in naval hydrodynamics CFD
applications such as wave and current loading on fixed and
floating ship hulls and off-shore structures, coastal wave
dynamics and wave scour simulations.

Focus will be given to the presentation of validation and
verification results, user testimonials and mesh generation
issues for a range of naval hydrodynamics problems.  The
event includes the reports from

- Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), 2-5 May 2016
- SHOPERA: 3rd Public Workshop 13-15th April 2016
- Tokyo 2015: A Workshop on CFD in Ship Hydrodynamics, 2-4
December 2015
- TULCS EU FP 7 Project: Tools for Ultra Large Container Ships
In-house validation and verification

Invited speakers:

Prof. Hrvoje Jasak, Wikki Ltd: presenting the Naval Hydro
pack produced by Wikki
Dr. Steven Downie, Arup: presenting experiences of the use
of OpenFOAM® in off-shore simulations
Mr. Vuko Vukcevic, Uni Zagreb: presenting seakeeping and
added wave resistance results and implementation of the
SWENSE solver
Mr. John Stone, Pointwise: High quality meshing of ship hulls
