Description

The project aims to develop modelling strategies for towing tank model testing. It conducts experiments for installation of offshore platforms and offshore renewable energy systems.

The experimental measurements will serve as benchmarks for further study and design validation.

Comprehensive analysis of the results will provide valuable insights. Insights into the interactions between multiple vessels/structures during offshore operation at sea.
