SNAME Chesapeake Section Presents March's Technical Dinner Presentation

TITLE: 
OUTSIDE THE BOX: THE HIGH-TECH APPROACH TO SHIP AND YACHT DESIGN

ABSTRACT:

Producing an optimum marine vehicle often requires a break from the traditional approach to design.  The process is best started from scratch, and often requires the Naval Architect to venture outside his or her usual ”comfort zone.”  Traditional experience has to be replaced by state-of-the-art methods from the field of computational physics.  Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Fluid/Structures Interaction (FSI), and Velocity Prediction Programs (VPPs) dominate the approach.  This talk demonstrates how such methods work, and takes examples from commercial ship propulsor design, ship and platform vibration mitigation, and BMW/Oracle’s America’s Cup winning wing-sailed trimaran.

PRESENTER BIO:  RICHARD KORPUS, PH.D.

Dr. Richard Korpus is Principal Scientist at Applied Fluid Technologies, a consultancy founded in 2000 to provide efficient solutions to complex aerodynamic and hydrodynamic design problems.  He’s been involved with the development and application of CFD software for more than 25 years, and his design experience includes submarines, surface ships, sailing yachts, and even swimming and flying robots.  He has more than 15 years’ experience designing America’s Cup Yachts, including the winged trimaran winner of the last competition in 2010.  Dr. Korpus earned his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, and holds graduate degrees in both Naval Architecture and Aerospace Engineering.
