Computational marine hydrodynamics deals with numerical study of flows around marine vehicles, such as surface ships, submarines, AUVs and ROVs,and offshore structures, both fixed and floating ones. Some of the important topics are marine vehicle resistance and propulsion,controllability,wave loads,wave induced vibrations and motions,and energy and ecology considerations. Correct understanding and application of hydrodynamics on marine vehicles and structures are vital in their design and operation. The aim of Mini Symposium of Computational Marine Hydrodynamics is to provide a platform for disseminating recent advances made in computational marine hydrodynamics and explore outstanding and frontier problems in computational marine
hydrodynamics for further research and applications.
