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.
