2.22 Design Principles for Ocean Vehicles

Class Info

Design tools for analysis of linear systems and random processes related to ocean vehicles; description of ocean environment including random waves, ocean wave spectra and their selection; short and long term wave statistics; and ocean currents. Advanced hydrodynamics for design of ocean vehicles and offshore structures including wave forces on towed and moored structures; inertia vs. drag dominated flows; vortex induced vibrations of offshore structures; ship seakeeping and sensitivity of seakeeping performance. Design exercises in application of principles. Several laboratory exercises emphasizing modern measurement techniques, model testing, and flow diagnostic tools.

This class has 2.20 as a prerequisite.
