Course format On-site
Datum 2021-01-11 - 2021-05-07

Source and dipole methods applied to hydrodynamic problems for marine structures. Effect of waves and current. Conventional ships and high speed vessels in calm water and waves. Sloshing. Nonlinear hydrodynamic loads on marine structures. CFD methods. Slamming. Whipping. Wave drift loads in irregular sea. Sum-frequency effects. Ringing.


The course requires a knowledge equivalent to the course TMR4215 Sea Loads.

Learning outcomes

  • Knowledge about the mathematical and physical basis for hydrodynamic analysis of wave-induced motions and loads on ships, tanks and ocean structures based on linear and nonlinear potential flow theory.
  • Knowledge about relevant numerical methods with emphasis on Boundary Element Methods.


  • Be able to develop numerical tools for wave-induced motions and loads on ships, tanks and ocean structures.

General qualifications:

  • To be able to develop theoretical models for wave induced motions and loads on new marine structures where potential flow theory plays a dominant role.
