Naval Hydro Workshop

The first edition of Naval Hydro Workshop was held at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture on 28th and 29th of January. The aim of the conference was to provide a platform for establishing contacts between different companies and academic institutions in the field of naval hydrodynamics.

The workshop was organised by Prof. Hrvoje Jasak and Prof. Nikola Vladimir, under the auspices of the Department of Technical Sciences of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts.

During the conference, the University of Zagreb officially joined the ICNAME organisation (Innovation & Cooperation in Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering Alliance), represented by the Harbin Engineering University at the event.

The presentations at the workshop were related to naval architecture and ocean engineering, with an emphasis on development and application of numerical methods in the field of marine and offshore hydromechanics.
