Project Outline:
The aim of the project is to investigate the fundamental law of low-frequency sound-excitation, -propagation and -radiation from the ship hull into the water and implementing these in a prognosis model. The model should provide relevant information in an early design stage of the ship to reduce time-consuming changes and adaptions in later project phases. The gained knowledge allows noise reduced operations and a higher acoustic quality can be guaranteed. Prospectively followed requirements concerning radiated underwater sound can be met more easily as well.
