Course description

Learning outcomes

  • Observe and explain physical phenomena associated with seakeeping, resistance, propulsion and maneuvering of ships progressing in waves.
  • Explain the meaning of practical methods for the assessment ship dynamics associated with resistance, propulsion, dynamic stability and motion control.

  • Explain the general theory of surface waves and interpret modelling assumptions for use in computational models and experiments used for ship design.

  • Classify, synthesize and explain common approximations to the general models known as seakeeping and wave loading models and assess their applicability and deficiencies for application in design development and operational management practices.

  • Explain the basic principles of added resistance and maneuvering models in waves, as well as analyze and synthesize their use for ship design and the management of maritime safety.
