• Physical phenomena, basic fluid mechanics and relevant theory of resistance and propulsion.
• Introduction to the numerical and experimental techniques used to estimate hull resistance.
• Physical model testing, full-scale trials and empirical methods used in relation to ship powering problem.

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The written examinations allows the students to demonstrate their basic knowledge and understanding of the subject as well as to demonstrate their problem solving skills through short subject specific problems, under time pressure as required in industry. Coursework tests the ability of students to tackle an overall ship powering problem, to solve and to report it using taught skills by referring to much wider resources and communicating with others as in a “real design” case. The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as ‘A’ are also assessed in this way.
