Towards Sustainable Marine Technology and Transport

Special Announcements


As a tribute to the late Professor A. Yücel Odabaşı’s (1945 – 2009) life-long endeavours in promoting the science of Naval Architecture and in particular Naval Hydrodynamics, a biennial international colloquium aiming to focus on a different theme on each occasion, gathering specialists from around the world, was organized. First of these colloquiums was held in 2014 at Istanbul Technical University and concentrated on the subject of propeller noise and vibrations. The second colloquium was on manoeuvring of ships and submarines. The theme of the third colloquium in the series is selected as “Progress in Propeller Cavitation and its Consequences – Experimental and Computational Methods for Predictions”. In this colloquium, the recent developments in experimental and computational methods for predicting propeller cavitation performance of surface vessels and submarines will be discussed and new opportunities for collaborative research will be sought. The inauguration of the new large scale cavitation tunnel, ITU-CAT, will be the part of colloquium events. The ITU-CAT project is sponsored by the undersecretariat of defence industry, SSM.
