RNLI The Lifeboat College, Poole,

This series held annually around Europe since 1998, has allowed those active in the area of numerical hydrodynamics to present and discuss their research in an informal and relaxed setting. Attendance is between 50 and 60 with a focus on PhD students, early stage researchers and engineers.

Papers will be presented across the following subjects:

  • Nonlinear flows around marine structures (LES, RANSE, Euler with or w/o free surface)
  • Free-surface flows around marine structures (3-d ship seakeeping, free-surface viscous flows)
  • Related topics (validation experiments, numerical techniques, grid generation, etc)

The objective of the event is to provide a forum for informal discussions among experts in the field and to disseminate latest results. The event will be held at The Lifeboat College, Royal National Lifeboat Institution in Poole, Dorset. All participants stay and have meals together to maximize interaction and discussion. The extended abstracts of the proposed talk will be directly reproduced in pdf proceedings that will be published via the University of Southampton electronic archive The intention is to present your latest work (in progress), encountered problems, etc. should be discussed in an open, informal atmosphere (no ties!) among colleagues.

The first page of the extended abstract should be headed with the title and authors' names, affiliation and email address in a compact form to economize on space. Academic titles and page numbers shall be omitted. The extended abstract shall neither contain an abstract of the abstract, nor keywords, nor further headers. Font size shall not be less than 10pt Times New Roman. Extended abstracts should be limited to 6 pages in A4 format with 2.5 cm margin. An early reply will help us in organizing the event better. For the early feedback, a tentative title or topic will suffice. Following the tradition of previous NuTTS events, the fees will be kept low to allow a maximum number of scientists to attend. The fees including accommodation (2 nights) and all meals during the symposium:
