Numerical Simulations and Verification

The main objective of this workspace is to test and improve accuracy and liability of existing numerical flooding simulation tools in realistic large-scale flooding scenarios. This will be achieved by:

  • Verification of numerical models using model tests for “knowledge-gaps” such as the effect large open spaces and the internal arrangement;
  • Benchmarking of numerical models using dedicated model test results;
  • Generating input for probabilistic approach to be developed in workspace “Flooding Risk Model”;
  • Generating input for mitigation measures developed in workspace “Mitigation of Flood Risk”;

The numerical methods will also be used to nurture and support the use of numerical time-domain simulations as an alternative of support for compliance to IMO regulations in ship design and operation, including emergencies. Such simplified numerical tools will be used in a broader sense for risk assessment in the design stage of ships, and also on-board in an acute damage case where rapid answers are required.
