Computational methods for more fuel-efficient ship

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademic


    The flow of water around a ship powered by a combustion engine is a key factor in the ship's fuel consumption. The simulation of flow patterns around ship hulls is therefore an important aspect of ship design. While lengthy computations are required for such simulations, research by Jeroen Wackers and Barry Koren has shown that these computations can be conducted with much greater speed.
