Development of a CFD tool and associated experimental validation techniques for fluid mud bottoms disturbed by moving objects Ghent University
In navigation areas with bottoms covered by a thick fluid mud layer, deep-drafted ships may be
allowed to sail at a limited vertical distance above the mud-water separation , and sometimes ships
even sail through the mud. This causes a very intense interaction between the water column, the
mud layer and the ship. The purpose of this project is to develop a numerical methodology to
calculate the interaction between water, ...
