Short summary (English)

Chair of Ship Hydrodynamics primarily covers the area of ship hydrodynamics through teaching and research. Our work can be divided into several areas. Obtaining the hull form necessary to meet specific project demands through the database and/or parametric modelling obtain hull form necessary to meet specific project demands. Ship stability - calculating hydrostatic characteristics of a upright ship at still water, ship at heel and trim due to cargo movement, loading or unloading, and due to external forces; damaged ship stability calculations Calculating flow and resistance of the hull was based on the formula obtained through experiments or using CFD Selecting the optimal propeller or other types of propulsion We have extensive experience in the design and research of small boats and ships for special purposes To assist in the research we have developed a number of applications (or software codes) which cover these areas. Upon completion of towing tank construction, we will be able to carry out a series of tests on models of ships and thus expand the area of research and experimental methods in hull hydrodynamics; initially, we will be able measure hydrostatics of intact and damaged hull, the resistance and inclination of the hull at different speeds in calm water, and, with the upgrading of the pool equipment, it will be possible to examine the behaviour of the ship and the waves.

Short summary (Croatian)

Katedra za hidromehaniku plovnih objekata prvenstveno pokriva područje brodske hidrodinamike kroz nastavu i istraživanje. Naš rad možemo podijeliti na nekoliko područja. Određivanje forme broda, putem baze podataka i/ili parametarskim modeliranjem, potrebne za zadovoljavanje određenih projektnih zahtijeva. Računanje hidrostatičkih karakteristika broda u mirovanju, pri uzdužnom i poprečnom nagibanju uslijed pomaka, ukrcaja ili iskrcaja tereta i uslijed vanjskih sila; računanje stabiliteta oštećenog broda Računanje strujanja i otpora trupa broda bilo na bazi formula dobivenih eksperimentima ili putem CFD-a Odabir optimalnog brodskog vijka ili druge vrste propulzije Imamo veliko iskustvo u projektiranju i istraživanju malih brodova i brodova za posebne namjene Kao pomoć u navedenim istraživanjima razvili smo i niz aplikacija (ili programskih kodova) koja pokrivaju navedena područja. Po završetku izgradnje eksperimentalnog bazena biti ćemo u mogućnosti vršiti niz ispitivanja na modelima brodova i na taj način proširiti područje istraživanja i na eksperimentalne metode u hidrodinamici brodskog trupa; u početku će se moći vršiti mjerenja hidrostatičkih karakteristika neoštećenog i oštećenog trupa, te otpora i nagiba brodskog trupa pri različitim brzinama na mirnoj vodi, a, s nadogradnjom opreme bazena, biti će moguće ispitivati i ponašanje broda na valovima.
