Safe and efficient navigation
An improved hydrodynamic ship model will ensure a precise simulation of manoeuvres in shallow water, waves, currents, harbours, fairways, and channels.
PurposeThe purpose is to develop an improved hydrodynamic ship model based on a precise simulation of ship manoeuvres in shallow water, harbours, fairways, and channels.
The goal is to support the optimal use of Danish waterways based on safety and efficiency considerations.
To achieve this, we are developing a mathematical model to calculate waves and currents around ships, and determine hydrodynamic forces with higher precision than that which was previously attainable.
