SIG Ship Hydrodynamics
1 OpenFOAM Special Interest Group: Ship Hydrodynamics
The OpenFOAM Ship Hydrodynamics Special Interest Group (SIG) was initiated at the Third OpenFOAM Workshop in Milan, Italy, July 2008. See the openfoamworkshop.org  for more information about the workshop.
Join the SIG ShipHydro e-mail list to be part of the discussions!
- Identify developers and users who are interested in ship hydrodynamics and OpenFOAM.
- Develop OpenFOAM for ship hydrodynamics applications, including pre-processing, solution methods, and post-processing.
- Provide tutorials on how to produce accurate results using OpenFOAM in ship hydrodynamics.
- Distribute relevant validation test cases and corresponding OpenFOAM applications.
- Use OpenFOAM to develop Best Practice Guidelines. in ship hydrodynamics
- Connect people with the same interests.
- Organize meetings, workshops and collaborations.
