Online Hydroelasticity of Ship and Offshore Structure Training Course


Study of ship hydro elasticity for large vessels is one of the major topic since one decade. In comparison to small or moderately big vessels, container ships are large in size. Therefore, not only they are more flexible in nature, but at the same time the natural frequency of the structures falls in the range of the encounter frequencies which commonly occur in regular ocean.

These can cause significant damage to the hull due to springing, whipping etc. The same can be true for moderately large high speed vessels also. On the other hand, assuming the ship hull to be rigid may lead to overestimation of the hydrodynamic loads or pressure on the structure which can further result in an over conservative design.

Therefore, a proper prediction of the wave induced loads and the corresponding response of the vessel are extremely important for designing and scantling calculation for large vessels.


Engineers and scientists involved in the design of ships and ship systems. Personnel from ship management companies, oil companies, classification societies and ship builders will benefit from attending this course. The course is innovative in both content & structure with a careful balance of theory & practice.
