Projects

Powering optimisation of large energy-efficient multihulls operating at critical speeds (2011 - 2013)$410,200
Description
Due to significant increases in fuel costs and the requirement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, new multihull ship designs must now focus on reducing fuel costs and emissions as opposed to the quest for high speed. These new energy-efficient vessels need to operate in the critical speed zone where small changes in speed result in major increases in drag and trim. The project will develop new power prediction methodologies based on self-propulsion model and full-scale experiments, closely linked to computational investigations, leading to the development of new critical-speed multihull forms.

Wave Slam on High Speed Wave Piercing Catamaran Ferries in Large Seas (2008 - 2011)$389,000
Description
Catamaran transport vessels experience extreme damaging loads during large wave slam events when the crest of a wave impacts on the structure. This is a critical structural design case especially for developing military support. This project will consider the accurate prediction of ship motion in large seas and methods for identification of slams in data sets obtained in sea trials on full size vessels in service. The project will develop analytic algorithms to predict slam loads and duration for incorporation into ship motions and loads computation software. Tank testing will provide a controlled validation of the predictive method.
