Lifetime assessment for deepwater moorings Lifetime assessment for deepwater moorings

Mooring integrity is an important concern in the offshore industry. Mooring leg failures can have significant consequences, such as temporary shutdowns and require unplanned, thus expensive,
repairs. The challenges raised by mooring failures are significant and demand improved methods for the design of deepwater moorings.


A computational study of the flow around the KVLCC2 model hull at straight ahead conditions and at drift
The flow around the KVLCC2 model tanker hull at 0 deg, 12 deg and 30 deg drift is investigated using classical Reynolds Averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) models from two different proprietary codes, hybrid RANS-LES models from one of these proprietary codes, and Large Eddy Simulation (LES) models from…
Calculation of hydrodynamic interaction forces on a ship entering a lock using CFD
Estimation of hydrodynamic interaction forces experienced by a ship entering a lock plays an important role in the initial design phase of the lock. This paper shows that with careful setup of the computations, reliable predictions of the ship-lock interaction effects can be obtained. In order to…
New CFD course, November 2016, Wageningen
MARIN will host a new CFD course for Maritime Applications at its Wageningen headquarters, November 14 - 17.

This course has been designed to reflect the latest developments in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) used in ship design, offshore engineering and renewable energy applications. The…
