DEPARTMENT OF OCEAN OPERATIONS AND CIVIL ENGINEERING

Ship Design Lab

The research activities within the Ship Design and Operations lab (ShipLab) focus on the design and behaviour of the ship in an offshore maritime operation environment. The ship is modelled in a virtual environment and the idea is to be able to simulate ship performance (motions, systems, propulsion) in real time. Design activities with fast-track tool, data driven design, 3D all over the process, PLM and modularisation are also considered. Activities have strong connection with the industry, via the Blue Maritime Cluster partners.

Current research focus is given in open and collaborative virtual prototype of ship design and operations. An open-source application capable to run real-time ship motion simulations in a web browser exemplify this research, in any device of any operational system with HTML5 compatibility. More information can be found in the dynamic page of the lab.
