The world's first ship tunnel tested under harsh weather conditions
The sea around Stad is one of the most exposed and dangerous areas along the Norwegian coastline. Heavy waves come from different directions at the same time, creating critical situations. In order to ease ship traffic and increase safety, the Norwegian Coastal Administration intends to build a ship tunnel, the first of its kind in the world.
Resistance of planning hull: A case study
In a project for STM, FINE™/Marine and HEXPRESS™ were used for the prediction of the resistance curve of a planing hull. The CFD results are validated against model tests.
