International HISW Symposium Yacht Design and Construction
Short Summary Provisional Program HISWA Symposium 2004
Nov 15,16 Amsderdam
1) "The Application of Slender Hull technology in both Power and Leisure Craft" by Nigel Irens from the UK. In this paper the designer will explore the relative merits and draw backs of the application of this type of hulls.
2) "Water world of human powered racing boats" by Leo de Vries from Holland. In this paper the author will look at the diversity of conceptual designs for water bikes, their innovative concepts and show the relative merits of a number of these concepts by dealing with the various design aspects.
3) "The Malthese Falcon: the DYNARIG realization" by Tom Perkins (USA), Gerry Dijkstra (NL) and Damon Roberts (UK). The authors will describe the development and research put into the realization of this revolutionary rig using the results from wind tunnel, towing tank, FEA analysis etc. on a 87 meter long hull.
4) "Design Considerations for Canting Keel Yachts" by Andrew Claughton from Wolfson Unit (UK) and Clay Oliver Yacht Research International (USA). This paper will deal with all the important design aspects of these new type of boats, such as the interaction effects between the foils, stability characteristics based on tank tests, CFD results and VPP studies and compare these with conventional yachts.
5) "A Tacking Model for sailing Yachts" by J A. Keuning, K J Vermeulen and E de Ridder from Delft University of Technology (NL) In this paper the results of the development, validation and application of a simulation model for the tacking behaviour of sailing yachts are presented.
6) "Best Mast: a new way to design a rig" by Robert Janssen of CLC-TNO (NL). This paper describes the development of the Best Mast design tool with special interests on the underlying load model and validation.
7) "The rig of the UCA- Finite Element Analysis" by Gunther Graebe (GER).In this paper the authors will present the results from an extensive finite element analysis carried out for this mast.
8) "Recovery from a Capsize" by prof. Richard Birmingham from Newcastle (UK) The recovery of a yacht after a capsize will be analyzed including how this may be influenced by design and operational aspects.
9) "Risk Analysis for Ships and SOLAS Regulations" by from TNO-PML (NL) This paper will describe a project in which a pragmatic approach has been sought usable for designers, builders and authorities to deal with the risks associated with fire onboard ships
