Type of Event: Conference, International

Computational fluid dynamics is a powerful tool for solving complex hydrodynamic problems. CFD offers the designer cost and flexibility advantages compared with model testing. However, many still see their use as more of an 'art' than a science, and the province of specialists. A lot of work is going into making CFD a universal design tool.

Marine CFD 2005 will focus on the application of CFD techniques to hull hydrodynamics, marine propulsors (propellers, pods, waterjets, etc), hull/propulsor interaction, and ship aerodynamics for conventional and unconventional ship design. The programme includes software workshops which will give the delegates a chance to participate in and discuss demonstrations of the latest CFD software.


The Institution invites papers on:

  • Practical applications of CFD techniques to marine design
  • Experimental and computational validation and benchmarking
  • Improvements in automatic mesh generation
  • Developments in adaptation grid generation
  • Coupling of CAD and CFD software
  • Development of quality standards and best practice

If you wish to submit a paper for this event, send a short abstract by the 24th Aug 2004 to Mark Staunton-Lambert at
