Development of a web based, collaborative working environment for maritime computational fluid dynamics

Turnock, S.R., Wright, A.M., Hudson, D.A., Keane, A.J. and Cox, S.J. (2003) Development of a web based, collaborative working environment for maritime computational fluid dynamics At Marnet CFD Meeting. 20 - 21 Mar 2003. 4 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


A report is given on the developments so far on a DtI/Wolfson Unit funded projects to use GRID technologies to facilitate CFD analysis of marine vessels. A web enabled front end allows remote access to appropriate CFD tools and facilities. The user is guided through the process of solid model creation, mesh generation, quality assessment, CFD analysis, result interpretation, and visualisation of the computed solution. Issues such as data security, appropriate access to commercially sensitive calculations and automated access to cost-effective computational platforms are discussed. Examples will be given of calculations for the seakeeping assessment of the Series 60 hull form and the upwind performance of a fully appended IACC hull.
