Automatic qualification of hull performance_

Determining the performance of a ship’s hull based on its speed, load and trim.


Automatic qualification of hull performance_

  • Maritime transport (which represents 90 % of the commercial goods transported worldwide and 1/8th of the energy consumed in the transport sector) is constantly growing.

  • The IMO (International Maritime Organization) is working to reduce CO2 emissions by 70 % by 2050.

  • Optimising ship hulls could reduce their consumption and thus their environmental footprint by 10 to 20 %.


OSE's missions : Modelisation & Simulation Computer Science_

  • Generation algorithms, automatic mesh optimisation and parametrisation

  • Undertaking fluid mechanics calculations to estimate the forces applied to the hull of a ship, factoring in all possible operational profiles

  • Implementing design of experiments to optimise the number of simulations to be carried out

  • Using machine learning to generate the behavioural model of the ship as the simulations progress

Development of an automated process to generate and perform complex simulations and process data obtained from machine learning libraries.


Benefits of OSE's solution_

A prediction model allows for multiple applications, from the choice of navigation parameters to defining the optimal hull shape.
Automation reduces research time and costs without compromising accuracy.
