Reduced fuel consumption and quieter propeller blades

All engineering problems in marine technology relates to hydrodynamics in some form, i.e. how the water influences the object. This concerns making the hull and propeller work good together to improve performance, whether it concerns reduces fuel consumption or making the propeller less noisy. This involves a range of questions relating to computational modelling of the effects of fouling on the real ship, cavitation on the propeller blades, and design methods and optimization. Further, making good predictions of the loads on the ship or a structure from the ocean waves is crucial to make an appropriate design, as well as for predicting the power a wave energy converter will deliver.
