Damen presenters to talk CFD at Tugnology ‘17

Published in category: Harbour & Terminal

Jochem de Jong and Joost Schot, Principal Research Engineer and Research Engineer at Damen respectively, will deliver a presentation on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) at Tugnology 2017. CFD is a very topical subject, with growing importance for the industry. During their presentation, Damen’s speakers will address the results of research conducted by the group, containing extensive verification and validation studies of CFD simulations on tugs for both resistance and drift conditions. Explanations will be given of how Damen implements the technology to increase knowledge and improve TugSim – Damen’s in-house developed tool to quantify the towing performance of its tug designs.
