Ventilation simulation

The Washington Post reported on April 25, 2020 that the Covid-19 coronavirus had infected passengers and crew on at least 55 ships, about a fifth of the total global fleet of cruise ships (Washington Post,...


Not only colorful pictures – CFD saves time and money

Did you know that by using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) you can save as much as 80 % in design time and 60 % in design costs? During the past 20 years, I’ve been lucky...


Simulation of deflagration in exhaust systems – An application of CFD in safety engineering

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is being increasingly used in safety engineering to simulate toxic gas dispersion, fires, and explosions. Experimental studies in this area are dangerous, difficult, and expensive. They are also often confined to...

Modern tools ease environmental retrofits and reduce risks

In the autumn of 2014 several more states have ratified the International Ballast Water Management (BWM) Convention. As a result the 35% world fleet tonnage requirement for the convention to enter into force is closer...

Ship operability analysis – ensuring passenger safety and comfort

Passenger and crew safety are primary concerns in modern shipbuilding. In addition to continued strong cruise industry growth, shipowners pay special attention to passenger and crew comfort, enjoyment on-board and smooth operation. This places limits...


The MetNet Mars Lander – Probing the Red Planet for climatological data

A new Mars lander concept has been developed in cooperation between the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) and the Lavochkin Association (LA). Instead of retrorockets, which were used in previous Mars missions, the lander concept relies...


Modern methods in ship structure analysis

Simulations are used commonly in ship design. Finite element simulations, for example, are used in the dimensioning of ship structures and systems, while computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations can be used in hull design to...


How can we predict flue gas dispersion?

When designing a new energy production plant, it has become increasingly important to pay attention to the effects the plant operations will have on the surrounding environment. This is partly due to the fact that...


Simulating the future

For the last two days I’ve had the pleasure of participating in the STAR Global Conference 2016 in wonderful Prague ( Even though the weather at this time of the year is not the most pleasant...
