NuTTS 2017

20th Numerical Towing Tank Symposium (NuTTS 2017)
Wageningen, 1-3 October 2017

This year, MARIN is organising the 20th Numerical Towing Tank Symposium. The conference covers the numerical simulation of flows around ships and offshore structures, with a strong link to realistic applications.

The objective of the event is to provide a forum for informal discussions among experts in the field and to disseminate latest results. Younger workers and Ph.D. students are especially encouraged to participate.

  • Nonlinear flows around marine structures (LES, RANSE, Euler with or w/o free surface)
  • Free-surface flows around marine structures (3-d ship seakeeping, free-surface viscous flows)
  • Related topics (validation experiments, numerical techniques, grid generation, etc)
Paper abstracts
Instructions for preparing the abstracts can be found in the templates provided. An early reply will help us in organising the event smoothly. For the early feedback, a tentative title or topic will suffice.

Draft versions of the extended abstract must be submitted before the draft deadline. In order to allow a fair evaluation of papers in case a selection is needed, these draft papers must be at least 4 pages long. Finishing touches can be added up until the final deadline. Both deadlines are strict (Dutch strict!) since they are set as late as possible in order to allow enough time for processing the papers.

3rd Call for papers
NuTTS 2017 Infopack

The extended abstracts of the proposed talks will be directly reproduced in pdf proceedings. Work in progress, encountered problems, etc. should be discussed in an open, informal atmosphere (no ties!) among colleagues.

Additional information
The event will be held at the Hotel Wageningsche Berg in Wageningen . All participants stay and have meals together to maximise interaction and discussion.

A tour to MARIN’s facilities is planned for Tuesday October 3 in the afternoon, after the official close of the conference. This event will require a pre-registration

The conference location can easily be reached by train and bus from the major airports in the Netherlands. The journey time from Amsterdam Schiphol airport is approximately 1.5 hours. Participants may arrive from Saturday 30th September, with the technical sessions starting after lunch on Sunday 1st October, and the conference closing with lunch on Tuesday 3rd October.

Following the tradition of previous NuTTS events, the fees will be kept low to allow a maximum number of scientists to attend. The registration fees including accommodation (3 nights, including 30th September) and all meals during the symposium will be:

  • 350 Euro for PhD candidates and students
  • 400 Euro for authors
  • 450 Euro for other participants
