To decide from a hydrodynamic perspective the optimum form for high technology ships, high speed ships and very large floating structures that will appear in the near future, and to establish hydrodynamic performance predictions and evaluation methods, we must analyze them using specific hydrodynamics for individual targets as well as general hydrodynamics. For example, we need ship hydrodynamics to estimate the resistance and propulsive forces on a ship. We also need the mechanics of multi-phase flow to deal with cavitation on the propulsor. In addition, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) that analyzes various hydrodynamic phenomena numerically is used widely due to the development of the computer. In this laboratory, we study flow around ships and floating structures based on these various hydrodynamics by theoretical calculation using personal computers, and model test in a high speed circulating water channel.
