February 17, 2017 - Observing cavitation for naval applications
One of ours services is to carry out measurement campaigns on board ships and to analyse the collected data. For submarines the noise signature is of crucial importance. MARIN is currently developing a cavitation observation...

February 17, 2017 - Hydrodynamic modelling for the remotely operated vehicle Visor3 using CFD
This paper addresses the hydrodynamic modelling of an inspection-class remotely operated vehicle using a viscous-flow solver for the accurate prediction of manoeuvring coefficients needed for control purposes

February 17, 2017 - Few places left for Offshore and Ship hydrodynamics courses
Both courses for Offshore and Ship hydrodynamics have a few places left. Join us in Wageningen or Shanghai!

February 17, 2017 - Software seminar in Shanghai for the first time, March 28
After successful software seminars in the Netherlands, Houston and Singapore, MARIN goes to Shanghai for the first time on March 28th, 2017. This seminar brings together developers and users to discuss the latest developments,...

February 13, 2017 - Impacts of the rudder profile on manoeuvring performance of ships
The profile of a ship rudder influences the forces it generates, which in turn influence the manoeuvring performance of a ship. Thus, rudder forces and moments should be calculated considering the profile. Instead of an...

February 10, 2017 - Maritime cognitive workload assessment
The human factor plays the key role for safety in many industrial and civil every-day operations in our technologized world. Human failure is more likely to cause accidents than technical failure, e.g. in the challenging...

February 10, 2017 - Retaining and developing submarine knowledge
The Dutch Underwater Knowledge Centre (DUKC) is a network of Dutch knowledge providers on submarine technology. DUKC was established in 2004 to maintain, develop and position the existing Dutch underwater industry and related...

February 3, 2017 - 38th FPSO JIP Week, March 27-31, The Hague
The 38th edition of the FPSO JIP Week & Forum is scheduled for March 27-31 and will be hosted by TNO, The Hague. The FPSO Research Forum will take place on Wednesday March 29.

February 3, 2017 - Why wait for the seventh wave?
The Royal Netherlands Navy, NLR, RADAC, Amarcon/ABB and MARIN joined in the ‘Salute’ project to work out a demonstrator system to anticipate quiescent periods for helicopter landing operations. And now the new ‘DoIT’ JIP aims...

February 3, 2017 - Onset and development of three-dimensional separation around diamond wing
In the present article, two viscous-flow solvers dedicated to hydrodynamic applications are used to predict the flow around the diamond wing. Both codes solve the incompressible flow using unstructured grids and finite volume...

February 3, 2017 - Finite mass transfer effects in cavitation modelling
In this paper, effects of the finite mass transfer rate with special focus on condensation is studied in detail. First, a cavity collapse will be considered to demonstrate how the finite transfer source term must be modified...

January 27, 2017 - MARIN Kids: coole filmpjes en spreekbeurtpakket
Wil je een spreekbeurt houden over de test- en meetwereld van de scheepvaart? Of wil je er een werkstuk van maken? Er valt veel over te vertellen. Want hoe test je eigenlijk schepen, terwijl ze nog niet gebouwd zijn? En hoe...

January 27, 2017 - The Walrus Class submarine and beyond
MARIN Report interviews the Commanding Officer of the Dutch Submarine fleet, Captain Hugo Ammerlaan about the Walrus Class service life extension programme and developments concerning the next generation of submarines....

January 23, 2017 - Creatief met regels, rompen en appendages bij Ontwerp- en Zeilwedstrijd
Team 7 ‘Kiel Jong-Il’ van Technische Universiteit Delft, ontwierp en bouwde de snelste modelzeilboot van Nederland. Het team won op 20 januari de zeilrace van 14 strijdende studententeams van Technische Universiteit...

January 20, 2017 - Current status of manoeuvring prediction methods, their mutual pros and cons and ways to quantify the capabilities
In the paper, we make an overview of prediction techniques and some of the developments in the last years. This is done from the viewpoint of the author: as user of every technique in his daily work, and as observed of ITTC...

January 20, 2017 - Studievereniging NES viert eerste lustrum in stijl
Onder de noemer 'MARIN Be(er)Save sailing contest' gingen de studenten de uitdaging aan: door weer en wind, in tien minuten zo veel mogelijk bier naar de finish brengen met een zelfontworpen zeiljacht voorzien van een patatbak...

January 13, 2017 - Verification and validation exercises for flow around KVLCC2 tanker
This paper presents the quantification of numerical and modelling errors for the solution of the flow around the KVLCC2 tanker at model-scale Reynolds number. Numerical errors are also quantified for full-scale Reynolds...

January 13, 2017 - Vliegende boten bij strijd om snelste zeiljacht
Op vrijdag 20 januari zullen studenten van de Technische Universiteit Delft en Rotterdam Mainport University (RMU) met elkaar de jaarlijkse strijd aangaan. In het Binnenvaartbassin van MARIN zal worden uitgemaakt wie het snelst...

January 12, 2017 - The Ocean Cleanup testing continues
Ocean Cleanup 2017 will mark the deployment of the first Ocean Cleanup system: the pilot. Over the last months MARIN performed scale model tests to optimise the computer models of the system.
