Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A clear understanding of the complex dynamic behaviour of a damaged ship and floodwater remains limited for ship designers and safety authorities. In this paper, a Navier–Stokes (NS) solver, which combines the volume of fluid (VOF) method with dynamic mesh techniques, was developed to simulate the flooding of a damaged ship. The VOF method was used to capture the fluid interface. The dynamic mesh techniques were employed to handle the mesh update following transient ship motions. To validate its performance, the solver was applied to the flooding problems of a damaged barge. The computed results are satisfactory with respect to the experimental data.
