Visit to FORCE Technology with introduction to the latest developments there


Presentations as below. After the presentations there will be a tour of the facilities at FORCE Technology including the new “Bridge D” simulator, the new Gangway and Crane simulators, towing tank and wind tunnels.

Presentations will be as follows:

• Computational Fluid Dynamics applied to estimation of required propulsive power in waves
• Route optimization for discrete optimization regimes like e.g. dual fuel, variable number of engines, with or without WHR systems etc., and discussion of innovative alternative strategies for Performance Monitoring
• Next generation maneuvering simulation software incl. simulator based tools for Offshore Wind: Gangway walk-to-work simulation, floating crane operation, advanced lifting equipment

The presentations will be complemented by a tour of the facilities at FORCE Technology including the new “Bridge D” simulator, the new Gangway and Crane simulators, towing tank and wind tunnels.

Programme

16.30 - 17.00 Arrival, registration and coffee

17.00 - 17.10 Welcome to FORCE Technology
By Peter Krogsgaard Sørensen, Vice President, FORCE Technology

17.10 - 17.40 *) Computational Fluid Dynamics applied to estimation of required propulsive power in waves
By Claus Daniel Simonsen, M.Sc. Ph.D, Head of Hydro and Aerodynamics Dept., FORCE Technology

If the installed power on ships is reduced due to energy efficiency concerns or due to requirements for lower service speeds (Slow Steaming) there is a risk that the ship is under powered for safe manoeuvring in waves. In the design process it is therefore of important to apply tools which can calculate required propulsive power when sailing in waves. FORCE Technology has developed a method based on CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) which can estimate the required propulsive power in waves.

17.40 - 18.10 *) Route optimization for discrete optimization regimes and innovative alternative strategies for Performance Monitoring
By Søren Hattel, M.Sc. Ph.D., Team Leader, FORCE Technology

Route optimization for discrete optimization regimes like e.g. dual fuel, variable number of engines, with or without WHR systems etc. is a challenging task. FORCE Technology has developed algorithms which can improve the route optimization for such vessels.
Optimal propulsive performance is of outmost importance in relation to fuel economy and emissions. To assess the performance of a ship data are recorded from the vessel and compared to a mathematical model. The mathematical model can be established in different ways: Physical/numerical data calculated from the design of the ship (White Model), data measured from the actual ship (Black Model) or from a combination of the two approaches (Grey Model). FORCE Technology has worked with all three approaches and pros and cons are discussed in the presentation.

18.10 - 18.40 *) Next generation simulation software at FORCE Technology
By Ole Lindberg, M.Sc. Ph.D, Specialist, FORCE Technology and Jacob Michelsen, M.Sc. Ph.D, Senior Specialist, FORCE Technology

In the next generation maritime manoeuvring simulators, we will see improved accuracy in the core of the mathematical models. Realtime simulation of water wave reflection, diffraction and refraction and hydrodynamic flows includes accurate modelling of squat, bank effects, ship-ship interaction and manoeuvring in shallow and confined waters. Advanced rigid-body dynamics enable us to accurately simulate fenders, mooring and ship collisions. This world of advanced maritime simulations is opened for engineers through new easy-to-use script-based engineering tools and training through simulator-based tools for the Offshore Wind domain: Gangway walk-to-work simulation, floating crane operation, advanced lifting equipment.


18.40 - 19.00 Sandwiches and soft drinks

19.00 – 20.00 Tour of the facilities at FORCE Technology (Simulator Bridge ”D”, Gangway Simulator, Workshops, Towing Tank and Wind Tunnels)
