Investigating hydrodynamic aspects and control strategies for ship-to-ship operations
is a Knowledge-building project with user involvement financed by The Research Council of Norway and industrial partners. The project objective is to develop new knowledge and new tools for studies of complex ship-to-ship operations. Project work packages have been designed to improve computational fluid dynamic tools for multiple bodies in close proximity and simulation models for interaction forces and moments. The final work package uses operational experience as an input to studies of future operational guidance tools for ship-to-ship operations.
