Much of her teams research takes place at the AMC, using scale models of RAN vessels in specialised facilities including the Towing Tank
and Model Test Basin.
The experiments make use of the Cambridge University Engineering Department's water towing tank
facility, shown in Figure 2.
Testing is carried out in a water towing tank
, which allows the correct establishment of the ground flow and rotating wheels.
This finding intrigued engineers in my research group on the other side of the Atlantic in the Towing Tank
Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Those were ISO 15016:2002 and the International Towing Tank
Conference (ITTC) Recommended Procedures.
There are several advantages in using a towing tank
with a flat plate.
During the course, students will be tasked with an advanced design-and-build project led by experienced marine professionals and young engineers, whilst gaining valuable experience of university life and exclusive access to the university's equipment including a towing tank
. The course also includes visits to local businesses to discover the role of cutting-edge marine technology in the modern workplace.
The current infrastructure at EIMA can accommodate up to 20,000 students a year and the plan is to develop a maritime centre including the establishment of a research institute with the largest Towing Tank
facility in the world.
The Korea Research Institute for Ships and Ocean Engineering (KRISO) now named Maritime and Ocean Engineering Research Institute (MOERI) performed towing tank
experiments to obtain data for resistance, mean flow and free surface waves applicable to design and CFD validation purposes.
The current infrastructure at the Eima can accommodate upto 20,000 students a year and the plan is to develop a maritime centre of excellence including the establishment of a research institute with the largest towing tank
facility in the world.
The team tested this by racing virtual crews, and modelling resistance in a variety of scenarios and comparing results with model-scale towing tank
Her unique hull form, which was developed over six months last year using extensive CFD modelling and towing tank
testing, offers superb sea keeping characteristics.
