Student Research Projects

We are always looking for enthusiastic students who want to dig deeper into the world of fluid dynamics and ship theory and offer several student research projects related with panMARE, which may be interesting for your Bachelor's, Project or Master's Thesis.

Currently, we are actively searching for students, who would like to write a thesis on one of the topics below:

  • Comparison of different numerical methods for the prediction of propeller cavitation (hydro-acoustic radiation):
    The main idea is to improve the prediction of the sound propagation of propellers. To this end, cavitation predictions shall be performed using different numerical methods and compared with each other. Possible improvements of the cavitation model in panMARE will be derived from this and incorporated in collaboration with research assistants on the panMARE team. For more information on this available Bachelor's, Project or Master's Thesis with a duration of 6 months and in cooperation with industry partner SCHOTTEL as part of a research project on hydro-acoustic radiation of propellers, please contact Dipl.-Ing.Martin Scharf 25.02.2021
  • Development and integration of a basic FEM-Solver:
    The main idea is to improve a simple Finite Element Method-Solver that can be used alongside panMARE to include deformations, e.g. of floating wind turbines, and include the deformation-induced hydrodynamics in our calculations. The An interface for the FEM-Solver's integration is also planned. Contact person: Dr.-Ing. Ulf Göttsche 25.02.2021


Interested? Please do not hesitate to contact us!

As you can see in its large number of applications, panMARE opens doors to a wide variety of marine research fields.
Use the potential (pun intended) of this fast and flexible panel code and tailor it to also include your favorite hydrodynamic topic of interest utilizing potential theory!

Do you have own ideas? We would love to hear your suggestions!
