SHIP MODEL TESTING BASIN

The ship is a huge property. It’s functional activity and investment play a decisive role in Shipowner’s success. Therefore the ship design is very important.

A completed product without fully technical specification as customer and designer’s desire causes the headache for investors. Even, there is not highly effective exploitation due to a sloping ship is built or optimality of machine capacity is not be used.

Laboratory – Model testing basin carries out experimentations on minimized ship model according to designer’s request to ensure technical specifications (as design calculation) like a really completed ship.

 
   

Model testing basin

Model of Tanker 100.000 tons
 
   

At present, Laboratory – Model testing basin has following affairs:

  • Resistance and propulsion tests.
  • Lagging current model test.
    Measurement and claboration of draft lagging current results of Hull model. Execution of measurement by modern technological probe.
  • Testing of free propeller model and Propeller – Nozzle Set Model in the open water.
    Model testing of hydrodynamic characteristic of free propeller model and Propeller – Nozzle Set Model in the open water.
  • Hydrodynamic characteristic test of free propeller model and Propeller – Nozzle Set Model in the open water for propulsion prediction.
  • Seakeeping test.
    Execution of Seakeeping test of ship model and offshore mobile objects: motion, resistance in head sea with advance velocity, rolling wave, annul ship displacement in smooth water.
  • Propeller model test in cavitation tunnel.
    Based on the propulsion model testing results and model arrangement in the cavitation tunnel to assess the working parameters value of propeller model for propeller model test.
  • Offshore mobile objects.
