The Joint Research Project mission is to collect and develop, through collaboration, a full set of ship performance data, to better understand the potential for ship energy efficiency.
Model tests results, Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) calculations, sea trials measurements and long-term monitoring data.
Recommendations and best practices on ship scale CFD.
Confidence in CFD to make more accurate energy-efficiency predictions.
The focus on full scale performance predictions based on CFD in this JoRes project is well in line with the vision of Wartsila Propulsion. A joint approach is the most logical way to reach the final goal.
The proposed JoRes presents a great opportunity to better understand the performance challenges facing ship designers and operators. It can also help them find better solutions as they seek to meet IMO pollution targets. This is a very comprehensive and timely initiative which will increase confidence within the wider industry in ship scale CFD performance predictions.
