FAST LOW WASH MARITIME TRANSPORTATION (FLOWMART) / 2003
Duration: 2000 -2003
Development of practical design tools for quantifying the wash effects created by the wake of a vessel and its propulsor as function of the forward speed. The project addresses the wash problem scientifically at a fundamental level with the view to help in the setting of criteria at European level for minimising the impact of wake wash. The developed tools meet these criteria and European policies on standardisation and regulations.
