TMR4220 Naval hydrodynamics

Learning outcomes

  • Knowledge about the theoretical and physical basis for viscous flow around ship and other marine structures based on Navier-Stokes equations.
  • Knowledge about when turbulent flow matters and how it can be modeled. Basic knowledge about the theoretical basis for analysis of lifting surfaces that are applied in marine technology.


  • Be able to develop numerical tools for viscous flow and lifting surfaces that are relevant for marine structures.

General qualifications:

  • Be able to develop theoretical models for new types of ships and other marine structures where viscous and/or lift effects play a dominant role.
