    • Application of CFD to seakeeping 

      Malin, Steinar (Master thesis, 2013)
      Simulations were done in both Star-CCM+ and FINE/Marine in both calm water and in waves on the KVLCC2 hull. Due to problems and following time limitations only one wave were simulated in FINE/Marine, and 7 wave cases were ...
    • Application of Inviscid Flow CFD for prediction of Motions and Added Resistance of Ships 

      Rørvik, Jørgen (Master thesis, 2016)
      Ships usually travels in waves, but their hull is normally optimized for calm water. One reason for this is that it is expensive to do accurate calculation of resistance in waves. Model test and URANS CFD is the most ...
    • Big Data Analytics As a Tool to Monitor Hydrodynamic Performance of a Ship 

      Gupta, Prateek; Steen, Sverre; Rasheed, Adil (Chapter, 2019)
      A modern ship is fitted with numerous sensors and Data Acquisition Systems (DAQs) each of which can be viewed as a data collection source node. These source nodes transfer data to one another and to one or many centralized ...

    • Calculation of Service and Sea Margins 

      Eide, Egill (Master thesis, 2015)
      In this thesis two tankers owned by Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Skipsrederi (KGJS) were investigated. A method of calculating service and sea margins for different speeds has been developed. When a ship is in normal operation, ...
    • Comparative Evaluation of the Performance of a Trimaran Seismic Vessel 

      Myklebost, Oda (Master thesis, 2016)
      The scope of this thesis is proposed by the naval architect and maritime engineering company LMG Marin. Currently, they are in the early design phase of a new trimaran concept intended for the seismic industry. This new ...
    • A comparison between fully-unsteady and quasi-steady approach for the prediction of the propeller performance in waves: Prediction of the propeller performance in waves 

      Saettone, Simone; Taskar, Bhushan; Regener, Pelle; Steen, Sverre; Andersen, Poul (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Maritime transport is the most energy-effective mode to move large amounts of goods around the world. Hauling cargo via waterway produces an enormous quantity of greenhouse gas emissions. Vessel fuel efficiency directly ...
    • Comparison of efficiency of pushing and pulling thrusters 

      Tornes, Stian Bakke (Master thesis, 2013)
      In this thesis the effect of thruster drive mode (pulling, pushing and pushing with duct) on the propeller design was investigated by the means of systematic calculations in a numerical calculating software (AKPA). It was ...
