Marine Operations and Simulation

Activities include both traditional shipping and offshore operations. Priority is given to:

  • Operations in exposed areas, extreme wind and wave conditions
  • Sloshing in tanks on LNG vessels
  • Marine operations involving installation, intervention and maintenance
  • LNG terminals, ship handling and mooring

Combination of multiple floating bodies, flexible and stiff/slender bodies is studied in connection with ship to ship cargo transfer operations as well as crane operations. Researchers are using and extending application areas for a number of numerical tools (SIMO, MIMOSA, RIFLEX, ...).
