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 [1] for more information about the workshop.

Join the SIG ShipHydro e-mail list to be part of the discussions!

2 Objectives

  • 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.

3 Meetings

  • July 2008: Birth of working group
  • 4 June 2009: Working group meetings at the 4th OpenFOAM Workshop, Montreal
    • Current list of participants (16 March): Paterson, Jasak, Racine, Maki, geir_oye, Criner, Albukrek, Nedungadi, Egan, Colicchio, Sanchi.
  • 4-6 Oct 2009: 12th Numerical Towing Tank Symposium (NuTTs), Cortana, Italy (tentative SIG Meeting).
  • 9-11 June 2010: Gothenburg 2010, A Workshop on CFD in Ship Hydrodynamics (tentative SIG Meeting).

  • September, 2010: 28th Naval Hydrodynamics Symposium, CalTech, Pasadena, CA (tentative SIG Meeting).

4 Guidelines

Source files and tutorial cases should be located in the OpenFOAM extensions SourceForge SVN repository.

Detailed written tutorials should be added to the 'tutorial' workspace below.
