Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Abstract

A new residual local projection stabilized method (RELP) is proposed as a result of an enriched Petrov-Galerkin strategy for the Oseen problem. The 12 × l pairs, l = 0, 1 with continuous or discontinuous pressures, are made stable by enhancing them with solutions of residual-based local Oseen problems and performing a static condensation procedure afterward. This process does not involve the numerical solution of the local problems and maintains the degrees of freedom of the original spaces. The method adds symmetric terms to the Galerkin formulation which are easy to implement at the element level. Consistency, well-posedness and error estimates are demonstrated, and an economic way to recover a locally conservative velocity field for the discontinuous pressure case is also proposed. Extensive numerical experiments attest the theoretical results and compare the RELP method to previously existing alternatives.
