The 9th International Workshop on Ship and Marine Hydrodynamics (IWSH'2015) will be held in Glasgow, UK on 26 - 28 August 2015.


The IWSH conference was first held in Wuhan, China in 1999. Then it was held in Wuhan, Shanghai, Zhenjiang, Harbin, Shanghai and Seoul in subsequent every two years. These Conferences have drawn a variety of international delegates with a common interest in ship and marine hydrodynamics. The conferences provide a forum to promote scientific advancement, technological progress, information exchange, and cooperation among engineers and researchers in ship and ocean engineering and other related fields.


The coming IWSH'2015 conference will be hosted and organised by University of Strathclyde and sponsored by Lloyd's Register, UK. The IWSH'2015 will be a platform for engineers and researchers to keep abreast of the current scientific and technological advancements in hydrodynamics of marine, ship and ocean engineering and other related fields, including theoretical, numerical and experimental aspects.

Conference Topics:

The scope of the conference will be broad, covering all issues related to hydrodynamics of ship and ocean engineering and other related fields. Specific themes include, but are not limited to:

  • Resistance, propulsion, seekeeping, maneuverability

  • Cavitation and cavitation flows

  • Linear and nonlinear waves and current

  • Slamming, sloshing, green water, run-up, impact

  • Computational fluid dynamics, numerical wave tank and virtual displaying system

  • Hull form optimization based on CAD/CFD

  • Fluid-structure interaction and hydro-elasticity

  • Environmental loads and underwater noise

  • Hydrodynamic performance of high speed vessels

  • Hydrodynamic performance of offshore platforms, pipelines, risers and mooring systems

  • Hydrodynamics of renewable marine energy and ocean resources

  • Experimental techniques for towing tank, wave flume and water basin

  • Other aspects of hydrodynamics in ship and ocean engineering
