Course content

Boundary layer flow. Instability and transistion to turbulence. Lifting surface theory. Separated flow past blunt bodies. Wake and jet flow. Slender body theory. Marine hydrodynamic applications.

Learning outcome

Knowledge about the theoretical and physical basis for viscous flow around ship and other marine structures based on Navier-Stokes equations. Knowledge about when turbulent flow matters and how it can be modeled. Basic knowledge about the theoretical basis for analysis of lifting surfaces that are applied in marine technology.
Skills:Be able to develop numerical tools for viscous flow and lifting surfaces that are relevant for marine structures.
General qualifications: Be able to develop theoretical models for new types of ships and other marine structures where viscous and/or lift effects play a dominant role.
