propulsion. All hydrodynamic performance need to be considered so as to optimise trade-offs between resistance.Novel ship concepts. and shipowner's demand for low operational costs require that a ship's hydrodynamic performance be studied and optimised at the highest level of sophistication. . Fluid flow predictions for ships and marine structures are complex and challenging. CFD tools relying on potential flow methods as well as more complex and resource intensive RANSE methods are being used for hydrodynamic optimisation. a high level of knowledge of the tool is essential. increasing size and speed. sea keeping and manoeuvring. which has been proved to reduce optimisation costs considerably and improve the accuracy of solution immensely. To perform such optimisations using CFD. Up till now model testing prevail which is often prohibitively expensive in terms of time and budget and hence only a very few hull modifications can be explored to arrive at the best possible solution. Lately.

CIFT in association with Flowtech International AB is conducting a SHIPFLOW training programme in India which opens up a great opportunity to all those who are engaged in ship design and research to familiarise and get hands-on-experience on the world's best CFD tool for the marine industry. SHIPFLOW codes are continuously improved based on research and industry feedback. The Central institute of Fisheries Technology (CIFT). We invite all those interested to set aside the dates April15-18 to make use of this rare opportunity at a very nominal cost . There are only a few installations in India at present and is growing.The SHIPFLOW CFD codes by Flowtech has been developed specially for ships and has proven its effectiveness for many projects through the years. Kochi. Kerala has successfully put SHIPFLOW for optimising fishing vessel designs where model testing is prohibitively expensive due the enormity of design variations.


This is demonstrated in an example of shape optimisation Each user needs to bring one computer for running SHIPFLOW. Smaller laptop will also work for most of the exercises. It provides the participants with the basic knowledge required to use the software on their own. The first application will be on the selfpropulsion simulation capability in SHIPFLOW.The three first days of the training gives a good overview of the complete SHIPFLOW Design Package. it is also a suitable course for current users who wants to learn more about the latest developments or just refresh their knowledge The fourth day is devoted to more advanced applications with SHIPFLOW. Although the training is aimed for at new users of SHIPFLOW. A Laptop with 64-bit operating system (Windows or Linux) and 4 GB of RAM memory is recommended. Flowtech will provide the necessary software and licenses CERTIFICATE WILL BE ISSUED ON SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE COURSE . This part of the training will also make use of the unique features available when using the Friendship Framework and SHIPFLOW jointly.

it is advised to carry cotton clothes which are loose in fitting and light in colour as the summer sets in. although the period between October and April are considered best. there is so much to explore in Kerala. . The period between April and August is considered the best time for getting Ayurvedic treatments. the stunning beaches or the rich cultural aspects. In April. Occasional showers with lightning is a characteristic of this season. Dutch. Kochi is the arguably the ideal starting point for exploring the unfathomable diversity and beauty of Kerala. making it ideal to visit the marvellous state. Cochin has emerged as the commercial and industrial capital of Kerala and is proud of its world class port and international airport that link it to many major cities worldwide. Chinese. as this time offers moderate temperatures around Kerala. Kochi (colonial name Cochin) is a vibrant city situated on the south-west coast of the Indian peninsula in the breathtakingly scenic and prosperous state of Kerala. Due to its close proximity to sea. The city is also well connected to other parts of the country through rail and road. British.Kerala. "Queen of the Arabian Sea". blessed with great natural beauty and diverse ecology. and Portuguese have left indelible marks on the history and development of Cochin. Whether it's the serene backwaters or the splendid hill stations. Over the years. This has made Kerala an all-season destination. for which Kerala is renowned worldwide. has been rated in the top three tourist destinations by the World Travel & Tourism Council and featured in National Geographic Traveler's '50 greatest places of a lifetime'. the climate of Kerala is neither too hot nor too cold. the Arabs. Its strategic importance over the centuries is underlined by the sobriquet. From time immemorial.
