Van Oossanen Naval Architects specializes in hydrodynamics, naval architecture, and design management to develop high-performance boats, ships, and yachts. The company strongly believes in continuous improvement, high efficiency, and sustainable design. They optimize the performance of vessels by combining extensive in-house research and development with state-of-the-art CFD software.

For one of their most recent assignments, they needed to assess the seakeeping behavior of a ship and, more specifically, its roll decay properties.

In this webinar, Vincent Jacobs, Hydrodynamicist and CFD Specialist at Van Oossanen will explain how they used CFD simulation to predict the ship’s roll decay, from mesh to simulation, and which options ensure good-quality simulations. He will then compare the CFD results with alternative methods, such as towing tank tests and empirical methods.

You will learn:

  • Which factors most influence the roll decay behavior of a ship
  • Which crucial aspects to pay attention to when setting up a roll decay simulation in CFD
  • How to compute the equivalent decay ratio
