When a new vessel is to be built, there is a need to evaluate the design and compare different concepts. But current methods to predict the vessel's performance needs to be improved to meet the new requirements. For example, today vessels are designed to be energy efficient in waves and in various loading conditions. The solution is the development of hybrid methods where experiments and computer simulations are combined to ensure reliable forecasts. The feasibility study will formulate a research proposal that will eventually lead to improved testing methods to predict vessel performance.
