Marine CFD - Department of Marine Technology at NTNU
- A Strategic University Program in Marine CFD started at NTNU in 2004.
- The program is funded by the Norwegian Research Council and the
first phase lasted for 5 years.
- The main focus is computational fluid dynamics involving
interaction between research groups in marine hydrodynamics,
fluid mechanics, and computational mathematics at NTNU,
- Currently the main topics of research are:
bluff body wakes, particle flows, ship-to-ship interaction, and interaction flow-plants in marine environments.
- NTNU has invested in
Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) equipment from Dantec Dynamics (opens in new window). The equipment is
used in the towing tanks and will be used for doing basic laboratory
experiments in close cooperation with the CFD-projects.
