Simulation-based Design Optimization considering environmental and energy efficiency requirements

Hours: 10


Statutory environmental and energy efficiency requirements within the SBDO approach

  • From the EU environmental protocol to the energy efficiency index (EEDI) requirements.


Overview of deterministic SBDO approach

  • Fundamentals of the SBDO techniques at a glance:
    • Optimization algorithms.
    • Geometry modifications.
    • Analysis tools (overview of calm water hydrodynamic and seakeeping models and their implementation, uncertainty quantification methods).

Aims and intended learning outcomes

  • Familiarize with some of the fundamentals of the deterministic and stochastic SBDO approach and the analysis tools needed to design safe and efficient ships via simulation-based design optimization including environmental and energy efficiency issues.

Recommended textbooks

  • Lecture notes provided by the lecturer.
