Teaching Methods

Please note that module leaders are reviewing the module teaching and assessment methods for Semester 2 modules, in light of the Covid-19 restrictions. There may also be a few further changes to Semester 1 modules. Final information will be available by the end of August 2020 in for Semester 1 modules and the end of October 2020 for Semester 2 modules.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship

Lectures in the classroom provide the students with general understanding of and familiarity of the special hydrodynamic requirements (IKO1, ISO1) of high speed craft; to learn techniques/develop skills to estimate/analyse resistance, seakeeping and dynamic stability behaviour (IKO2,3,4, ISO2); to select and analyse waterjets (IKO6, ISO3).

Observation of video films on the special hydrodynamic behaviour of planing craft and SWATH ships with commentary helps the students to understand and have the knowledge of specific hydrodynamics problems (IKO1).

This module covers a wide range of topics for different vessel types within relatively limited lecturing hours. The students are therefore strongly recommended and are guided to read classic and the state-of-the-art papers in their independent study time to support the lectures and to catch-up with the latest developments in this fast-developing subject area.

Alternative will be offered to students who are unable to be present in person.

Students should consult their individual timetable for up-to-date delivery information

Assessment Methods

Please note that module leaders are reviewing the module teaching and assessment methods for Semester 2 modules, in light of the Covid-19 restrictions. There may also be a few further changes to Semester 1 modules.

Assessment Rationale And Relationship

The assessment 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 constraints as required in industry.
