This unit introduces students to maritime hydrodynamics and Computational Fluid Dynamics to solve hydrodynamics problems. On successful completion of the unit, students should be able to:
- Develop and apply the mathematical formulation of the basic laws governing laminar, turbulent fluid flow and heat transfer.
- Explain the various approaches and techniques utilised in CFD.
- Develop appropriate mesh domains for CFD investigations into typical maritime vehicles, structures, and systems to obtain accurate and stable simulations.
- Solve and refine steady state and transient flow problems relevant to maritime engineering involving turbulence, using commercial CFD packages.
- Critically analyse the results using relevant theory and experimental data to obtain and explain the hydrodynamic and thermodynamic coefficients and characteristics of marine vehicles, structures, and systems.

Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (see withdrawal dates explained for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2018 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2018 will be available from the 1st October 2017.
