Final Report - VIRTUE (The Virtual Tank Utility in Europe)

Project ID: 516201
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This is the final report of VIRTUE project, which was an EU initiative of leading marine Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) centres to create a virtual basin by improving available CFD tools and integrating them in a comprehensive simulation environment of ship behaviour at sea. It aimed to complement model testing in real basins in the provision of hydrodynamic services.

The report begins with some introduction into numerical hydrodynamics challenges and then explains the project's main goals and methodology. It later presents its structure into individual work packages and the work performed and the results obtained under each one. Finally, there are conclusions on the project's success and impact on the industry.
