Tallinn University of Technology (TTÜ) scientists won a grant from the Estonian Research Council for work in experimental hydrodynamics between 2018 and 2022. The project, led by Senior Research Scientist Kristjan Tabri, has a budget of over 700 000 euro. The project focuses on optimizing ship design through computational fluid dynamics, more specifically, on developing […]
Possibilities for using environment friendly composite materials as the core hull material for autonomous surface vessels (ASV) By Mari Valgma, PhD Small Craft Competence Centre
TTU Centre for Biorobotics is collaborating with SCC to calibrate their novel flow measurement devices inspired by fish lateral line organs, the small neuromasts.
Boat registrations in Estonia Short summary In Estonia, mainly motor boats and rowboats of 4.5 – 7.99 m are entered in the registry. Before the economic crisis of 2006-2008 new sailing boats outnumbered second hand boats in the registry. In 2009-2010, only a few sailing boats were registered and since 2011 second hand boats prevail […]
Presentation “Boatyards, shipbuilding and towing tank construction in Estonia” was given in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture of Zagreb University. Summary of the presentation:
SCC and TTÜ (Tallinn University of Technology) biorobotics researchers carried out towing tank tests of a new, pressure sensors based water velocity measuring device of an underwater robot. The device is intended for future application in environment monitoring and archeologic research.
Study: Ship and boat manufacturing in Estonia 2014-2015 The study conducted by SCC focuses on the companies manufacturing ships and boats in Estonia.
The Lainergy (Wave Energy Company) team is hard at work preparing for the testing of their 1:3 prototype at Tallinn University of Technology Small Craft Competence Centre in Kuressaare (SCC).
Hydrodynamic experiments with the Salme viking ship Weâ€™re taking the model of the ancient ship Salme on water, in our towing tank.
