IHC Dredger

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) calculations were carried out for a hopper dredger, designed by IHC Dredgers.

The purpose of these calculations was to determine the resistance of the vessel empty and loaded, in shallow and in deep water, and to check the design of the hull and the alignment and positioning of the hull appendages, and the calculation of the wake field at the propeller locations for use by the propeller designer.
