HYDRONAV' 2012 / MANOEUVRING' 2012
19th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON HYDRODYNAMICS IN SHIP DESIGN
4th INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON SHIP MANOEUVRING
19th -21st September 2012 Iława, Poland
The Foundation for Safety of Navigation
and Environment Protection - IŁAWA
in cooperation with:
Gdańsk University of Technology
The HYDRONAV conference is devoted to the problems of hydrodynamics
associated with design and operation of ships and marine objects.
The HYDRONAV conferences have quite a long tradition.
The first one was organized in 1973. Up to 1987 the conferences
had a local character. They became international starting from 1989.
The initial conferences were organized in turn by the Faculty of
Ocean Engineering and Ship Technology of the Gdańsk University of Technology,
Ship Design and Research Centre in Gdańsk, Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery
of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Gdańsk, Faculty of Marine Technology
of the Technical University of Szczecin, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
of the Technical University of Wrocław.
The idea is to organize such the conferences every two years. At present the
Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Gdańsk
and Faculty of Marine Technology of the Technical University
of Szczecin have left the group of conference organizers.
The MANOEUVRING symposia were organized by the Foundation for Safety of Navigation
and Environment Protection. The first one was held in 1993 as an international symposium.
Now the fourth MANOEUVRING symposium is approaching.
It has been decided by the Organizing Committee that the HYDRONAV conference
and MANOEUVRING symposium in 2012 will be organized together as a joint conference
as it was done in 1999 and 2005.
The conference is thought to provide a forum for the papers and discussion
on the theoretical and experimental hydrodynamics for applications in design
and operation of ships and other marine vehicles.
The conference papers will refer to the following problems:
- ship hydrodynamics for design
- ship hydrodynamics in operation
- ship hull form design
- resistance, propulsion and propellers
- manoeuvrability and steering devices
- manoeuvrability in restricted waters
- ship stability and seakeeping
- ship motions in restricted and shallow waters
- methods of assessment of ship performance
- hydrodynamics of high speed craft
- safety of ships at sea
- safety of marine systems
- methods of assessment of ship safety
- protection of marine environment
