Towards Sustainable Marine Technology and Transport


The Second AYO Colloquium covers topics related to experimental and computational methods for manoeuvring performance of surface vessels and submarines, which include, but not limited to the following;

  • Free and captive model tests
  • Practical application of computational methods to manoeuvring prediction
  • Predictions using viscous flow CFD
  • Predictions based on system identification methods
  • Manoeuvring and course keeping in waves
  • Manoeuvring criteria for surface vessels and submarines
  • Effects of wind, waves, current and constrained water on manoeuvring performance
  • Course keeping of surface vessels in astern
  • Experimental flow measurements for CFD validation
  • Heeling due to turning
  • Controllability of high speed craft
