Hydrodynamics modelling

Computer modelling can be done in the following areas:

In-house software


Time-domain code for moored ship motions and loads


Panel code for nonlinear flow around ships


Slender-body code for flow around ships in shallow water


Panel code for flow around submarines

Third-party software

MATLAB: Mathematical software

WAMIT and NEMOH: Radiation / diffraction software for wave-induced loads and motions

OCTOPUS and PDSTRIP: Strip theory for ship wave-induced motions at forward speed

DELFTSHIP: Ship design software

MICHLET: Resistance and wake of monohulls and catamarans

OPENFOAM: CFD software for viscous flow calculations
