Ongoing Research Projects
Within this research a Decision-Support-System (DSS) for sea-going vessels is developed. The DST focusses on the vessel’s hydrodynamics in waves under shallow water conditions.
The overall objective of the joint project “FlaBi” is to increase the resilience of inland vessels during pronounced periods of drought by extending their operational limits. To achieve this goal, three project partners are developing innovative ship d
The stricter emission limits for new ship engines and the possible introduction of an energy efficiency criterion for IWT design pose significant challenges for IWT. An individual and holistic view of the interaction of hull, propulsion and steering sy
The completed project “Determination of the effective propeller inflow for inland navigation” clearly shows that the operating conditions of the propulsion units on different aft ships and water depths are extremely different. In modern inland navigati
