Faculty from UBC’s Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (NAME) program have received Industrial Research Chairs from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) to study next-generation intelligent and green marine vessels (IGMVs). Dr. Rajeev Jaiman and Dr. Jasmin Jelovica bring their respective expertise in computational fluid mechanics and fluid-structure interaction as well as advanced techniques for analysis and optimization of multifunctional structures for marine vessels to this exciting new project. Their research on IGMVs aims to create efficient vessels that not only produce less greenhouse gas emissions, but also less harmful underwater noise. The two chairs will take on the project from different angles, collaborating to develop simulations that predict the characteristics of ship behaviour in motion. This will allow them to then create new design tools, that not only look at how to build a greener ship but how it can be operated in a more efficient and sustainable way.
