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

Numerical prediction of slam loads on a wedge shaped ship section during water entry is carried out using Computational fluid Dynamics (CFD) techniques by employing Finite Volume Method (FVM) for discretization of the flow equations and Volume of Fluids scheme (VOF) for free-surface capturing.
