Twenty First International Conference on Hydrodynamics in Ship Design and Operation


Organised by:

Ship Design and Research Centre S.A. (CTO S.A.)

in co-operation with:

Gdańsk University of Technology,

Wrocław University of Technology,

The Foundation for Safety of Navigation and Environment Protection,

Maritime Academy in Gdynia,

Extended Topics:

  • Open or ducted propellers
  • Podded propellers and thrusters
  • Water-jets
  • Unconventional propulsors (CRP, stator/rotor, surface piercing propellers, tip loaded, rim driven,...)
  • Energy saving devices and methods in ship hydromechanics
  • Ocean current or tidal turbines
  • Propeller/hull/rudder interaction
  • Propeller design
  • Modeling of cavitation
  • Noise and vibration
  • Propeller and rudder cavitation and erosion
  • Numerical methods in propulsion (VLM, BEM, RANS, Hybrid, LES, DES, DNS)
  • Experimental techniques
  • Full-scale measurements
  • Propulsion at off-design and crash-back conditions
  • Dynamic positioning
  • Propulsor-ice interaction
