Different organizational changes at DTU Maritime have taken place and the consequences of these changes will be presented. Different interesting research projects will also be presented and discussed including a look into the future of possible research activities.

17:00 - 17:20 Welcome and Introduction
by professor Harry Bingham, MEK DTU and head of Maritime DTU Mette Sanne Hansen

17:20 - 17:40 Final results from the SHOPERA project
by professor Harry Bingham
The Energy Efficient Safe SHip OPERAtion, or SHOPERA, project was an EU-FP7 funded collaboration which was completed in September of this year. The project brought together 24 Universities, Classification Societies and Industry partners from around Europe. The goal was to develop guidelines for ensuring the safe operation of ships designed to satisfy the new EEDI criteria. This talk will summarize the conclusions and recommendations resulting from the project.

17:40 - 18:00 Review of existing IMO weather criteria
by professor Jørgen Juncher Jensen

18:00 - 18:30 Refreshments

18:30 - 18:45 Development of a simple design tool for prediction of added resistance in waves for container ships
by Mads Martinsen
When a ship sails in real seas, it will experience an added resistance due to waves which is an important quantity to be able to estimate in the initial design stages of the ship. A simple design tool for this purpose was developed at DTU in 2015 for tanker/bulker type hulls, and shown to give surprisingly good predictions based only on the ship length, breadth and draft. The aim of the current project was to extend this tool to include other slimmer ship types, in particular container ships. This talk will present the results of this project.

18:45 - 19:00 Latest development of EEDI for Ro-Ro ships
by Hans Otto Kristensen, senior researcher at DTU until 30. September 2016
New software for generic modelling of Ro-Ro ships has been developed at the former DTU Transport, for prediction of environmental performance of Ro-Ro ships. Using this design tool it has been possible to evaluate the existing EEDI rules for Ro-Ro ships, which seems to be very difficult to fulfil. The problem will be intensively discussed at MEPC 70 in October 2016.

19:00 – 19:15 Research based support for the Authorities by Mette Sanne Hansen

19:15 – 19:30 Teaching by professor Harry Bingham

19:30 – 19:45 Presentation of PRADS 2016 by associate professor Ulrik Dam Nielsen

19:45 – 20:00 Final questions and remarks and closure of the meeting
