This year, Centrale Nantes, CNRS and the LHEEA (Hydrodynamics, Energetics & Atmospheric Environment Laboratory) are organising the 19th Numerical Towing Tank Symposium. The conference covers the numerical simulation of flows around ships and offshore structures, with a strong link to realistic applications.
Its objective is to provide a forum for informal discussions among experts in the field and to disseminate the latest results. Work in progress, problems encountered, etc. are discussed in an open, informal atmosphere (no ties!) among colleagues. Young workers and Ph.D. students are especially encouraged to participate. All participants stay and eat together to maximize interaction and discussion.
- Nonlinear flows around marine structures (LES, RANSE, Euler with or w/o free surface),
- Free-surface flows around marine structures (3-d ship seakeeping, free-surface viscous flows),
- Related topics (validation experiments, numerical techniques, grid generation, etc).
