Understanding vessel maneuverability with simulation: The latest technology and approaches for all design stages

Learn how system and CFD co-simulation can empower you to master ship maneuverability.


Ship maneuvering simulation

The marine industry is experiencing a push to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This industry-wide requirement is calling for more fuel-efficient power trains, innovative hull designs and the use of energy saving devices. These changes raise important questions: How will these new requirements affect the maneuverability and overall safety of a ship? How can we guarantee performance in real-world operating conditions?

With the use of simulation tools from Simcenter, you can access the toolsets and workflows needed to help address the challenges of maintaining safety and operability as the industry moves toward more innovative ship designs.

This webinar explores:

  • The latest updates and technology that address ship maneuvering simulation needs
  • The correct simulation approaches to take at various stages in the design process
  • The tradeoffs between simulation turnaround time and accuracy
  • How co-simulation between 3D CFD and 1D system simulation can help further your understanding of your vessel’s maneuvering characteristics
