2.019 Design of Ocean Systems

Class Info

Complete cycle of designing an ocean system using computational design tools for the conceptual and preliminary design stages. Team projects assigned, with each student responsible for a specific subsystem. Lectures cover hydrodynamics; structures; power and thermal aspects of ocean vehicles, environment, materials, and construction for ocean use; generation and evaluation of design alternatives. Focus on innovative design concepts chosen from high-speed ships, submersibles, autonomous vehicles, and floating and submerged deep-water offshore platforms. Lectures on ethics in engineering practice included. Instruction and practice in oral and written communication provided. Enrollment may be limited due to laboratory capacity; preference to Course 2 seniors.

This class has 2.001, 2.003, 2.005, and 2.016 as prerequisites.

2.019 will be offered this semester (Spring 2019). It is instructed by C. Chryssostomidis and M. S. Triantafyllou.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on Fridays in NE45-202A.
