DNV - An introduction to LNG for Naval Architects and Marine Engineers Course
Instructors: Peter Noble (Noble Associates LLC), Tony Teo (DNV) and Timothy E. Meyers (USCG)
Date: Tuesday, November 5, 2013
Time: 8:30am - 5:00pm
Fees: $295 each, refreshments and lunch will be included

Although Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) has been transported by sea for over 50 years, there has been a rapid expansion in that trade in recent times and new initiatives such as LNG fueled ships and Floating LNG Production, Storage and Off-take Systems are raising interest among naval architects, marine and ocean engineers. This short course is designed to give experienced and young professionals an introduction to key elements in the design, engineering, construction and operation of LNG ships and offshore systems.

Numeca International – FINE™/Marine “CFD for Naval Architects” Workshop

Date: Tuesday, November 5, 2013
Time: 8:00am - 5:00pm

This one-day workshop will provide an introduction to FINE/Marine, the only CFD tool dedicated solely to marine hydrodynamic applications. Attendees will be able to see for themselves, how FINE/Marine, guides the user through the CFD solution process, from start to finish. All the components are wrapped up in a naval architecture-oriented interface from CAD, to meshing, solving and automated results viewing.

ABS - "An Introduction to Arctic Engineering"

Date: Tuesday, November 5, 2013
Time: 8:00am - 5:00pm
Fee: $295 per person, refreshments and lunch will be included

The exploration for resources and marine transportation in the Arctic region are becoming increasingly viable and correspondingly the interest in research and commercial exploitation has been steadily rising. This requires vessels, offshore structures and their equipment to be designed to operate in ice covered waters in high latitude, low temperature environments. This introductory course will provide participants with a view of up-to-date Arctic marine and offshore activities, regulatory issues in the Arctic, Arctic environments and ship-ice interaction, performance of ice capable ships, ice strengthening design standards, design and operational considerations for low temperature environments, design-assessment procedures for direct calculation and offshore structures in the Arctic.

Creative Systems - General GHS Training Course

Date: Monday, November 4 - Wednesday, November 6, 2013
Time: 8:00am - 5:00pm

This is a beginning to intermediate level course for naval architects, salvors and others whose work requires the use of the GHS software. Topics include: Section Editor, Part Maker and Model Converter Modules; basic concept and principles; model building; run files; GHS commands and the command language including macros and variables; creating tables and graphs; load conditions; stability criteria; intact and damage stability; wind heeling moments; free surface issues; longitudinal strength calculations including waves; tank characteristics and tables; floodable lengths; introduction to Load Editor; and possibly time for last day topics from students.

CD-adapco - The Virtual Tow Tank

Date: Tuesday, November 5, 2013
Time: 8:00am - 5:00pm

The aim of this one day short course is to teach the techniques needed to conduct accurate and efficient marine simulations using computational fluid dynamics. The course is structured as a combination of lectures, demonstrations and workshops (tutorials). Best practices for meshing and analysis of stationary and multi-degree-of-freedom (DOF) free-surface applications are emphasized and demonstrated. Attendees will leave the short course having constructed a model of a typical ship geometry and set up a resistance analysis. Examples will also be shown of calculating sinkage and trim, seakeeping and the modeling and analysis of propellers.
