    Ship Design Subarea

    Professor UMEDA Naoya   Associate Professor MAKI Atsuo
    This subarea investigates ship safety at sea. For preventing sea disasters which could result in marine pollution and/or loss of many human lives, ship manoeuvrability and stability are focused in the light of free-running model experiments, nonlinear dynamics, automatic control theories, random process theory and so on. The research results could contribute to development of manoeuvring standards against collisions, stability criteria against capsizing, and minimum propulsion power requirements against grounding in adverse weather conditions, which could upgrade future ship designs.

    Ship Structural Integrity Subarea

    Professor FUJIKUBO Masahiko   Associate Professor IIJIMA Kazuhiro   Assistant Professor TATSUMI Akira
    This subarea deals with a wide range of research topics related to strength of ships and offshore structures. The research topics include 'hydro-elastoplasticity problem of ship', 'Interaction between global (hullgirder) and local (e.g. double bottom) strength', 'behavior of structures for harnesing renewable energy under combned wind and wave loads', 'single-point-moored floating structure', 'strength analysis of deep-sea risers and drill pipes', 'aquacultural net', 'VLFS', etc. The staffs and students amounting to about 25 in number are yielding new research findings every day.

    Hull Form Design Subarea

    Professor TODA Yasuyuki   Associate Professor MATSUMURA Kiyoshige   Assistant Professor WU Ping-Chen
    The flow field and hydrodynamic forces around ships and under water vehicle are investigated using the theoretical, experimental and computational fluid dynamics to understand the relationship between the hull or vehicle form and the performance. Many ship related projects such as optimum hull form design, low drag body design and new propulsor development are carried out.
