Hydrodynamics and hydro-structure

Technical Bulletin 2008


A detailed understanding of hydrodynamics and the response of complex structures to liquid forces is at the heart of our ability to ensure ever larger and more complex structures are both safe and efficient.  The papers grouped in this section headline the challenges faced by hydrodynamic researchers, and the advances made. Special reference is made to advances in understanding elastic behavior, particularly for large container ships and to dynamic coupling between vessel and tank liquid and between vessel and offshore unit structure and external fluid loads.
