The central objective of the project is to ascertain the feasibility and the economics of applying a meshless numerical technique, the so-called Finite Pointset Method, based on Lagrangian principles, to generate (numerical) sea states for application to finite element models of naval vessels.
The project will be supervised by Prof. Robert E. Melchers, in conjunction with researchers from University of New South Wales and Pacific-ESI.
