An accurate prediction of propeller hull interaction is an important step in the design of a new vessel. The prediction of full-scale flow phenomena, which eliminates scale effects, is becoming available due to increasing computational power. However, the complexity of full-scale CFD calculations combined<br/>with a lack of validation data...

Cavity buffeting noise is the main contributor to discomfort in sky-dive tunnels. Low frequency noise, generated by self-sustained cavity shear-layer oscillations, similar to automotive sunroof-buffeting noise and side-window buffeting noise, is observed in sky-dive tunnels. Typical low frequencies are not conventionally audible to the human ear...

Fuel efficiency is an important factor for the shipping industry both regarding new build vessels and existing vessels. A method to reduce the fuel consumption of existing vessels operating in off design conditions is to trim a vessel in the most optimum trim condition. The current approach to determine the most efficient trim condition is to...
