Fast low wash maritime transportation (FLOWMART)

Objective

The objective of this project is to formulate a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) method and software to assess the wave and wash making characteristics of High Speed Craft (HSC). Several CFD technique will be developed before validation by means of model testing and full-scale trials on 3 typical hull forms: High Speed Catamaran, Conventional Catamaran and High Speed Monohull. The most promising candidate CFD technique will then be combined with both interactive and non-interactive numerical optimisation methods and used to develop two demonstrator hull forms (High-Speed Catamaran and High-Speed Monohull) for further testing and analysis. Finally, guidelines and criteria will be drawn up covering the effects of wash making on the environment and means by which this can be minimised.
