Technical Bulletin 2006

Our understanding of hydrodynamics is advancing rapidly, as is our ability to calculate the response of structures to an ever more detailed analysis of hydrodynamic forces.

The papers grouped in this section headline the challenges faced by hydrodynamic researchers, and the advances made.

Special reference is made to the application of hydrodynamic research to the design of very large LNG carriers.

There are also papers on the detailed research into specific local effects and hydro elastic coupling.
