Flow ship design d.o.o
Flow Ship Design is an independent ship design company, located in Pula, Croatia. Our goal is to deliver innovative design and engineering solutions which provide higher performance and more value for our customers.
Our specialization covers a large range of vessels, including all the phases of the ship design process as well as Research and Development.
IRT Jules Verne
Well equipped to do developments in Composite parts manufacturing (brand new workshop just under commissioning), AM machines and testing facility for fatigue and mechanical test of structures up to 8m long and 3m wide!
NetComposites’ mission is to be one of the world’s leading specialists in applied composite material technologies. Through our research, consultancy, training, information and conferencing services, we aim to develop innovative, commercially successful composite materials, whilst helping our clients and partners benefit from better materials, processes and business opportunities.
Newcastle University – Marine, Offshore and Subsea Technology Group
We specialise in research and education for the maritime sector. We have an increasing focus on lightweight marine for research projects and also incorporated into our teaching curriculum. For marine composites we have specific expertise in strength/failure analysis, fluid-structure interaction and structural design of naval vessels.
Research Insitutes of Sweden (RISE)
The RISE institutes Innventia, SP, Swedish ICT and Swerea have merged in order to become a stronger research and innovation partner. Through our international collaboration programmes with academia, industry, and the public sector, we ensure the competitiveness of the Swedish business community on an international level and contribute to a sustainable society.
Ship Design and Research Centre; Environmental Laboratories Division
Sirris is the collective research center for the Belgian industry. We support the industry by helping them adopt technological innovations.
Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
Performing advanced research in the field of composite materials in a variety of applications by implementing experimental testing of composite structures (standard and custom) combined with FE modelling, built in house codes and analytical solutions.
TNO, the Netherlands Organisation for applied scientific research, is an independent organization founded by law in 1932 to enable business and government to apply knowledge. At TNO Structural Dynamics we develop, analyse and test the most varied mechanical constructions on land and water (everything from ships via lock gates to bridges and even rockets). Having a well-equipped lab means that practical and theoretical knowledge go hand-in-hand and we are able to solve the most complex problems. We can also carry out tests on location. The great diversity of projects within structural dynamics means we can offer a suitable solution for the most complex construction problems. We are able, for example, to look at and test the shock and explosion resistance, ultimate strength, fatigue, noise emission and wind resistance of the most varied objects under typical or extreme conditions.
TWI is one of the world’s foremost independent research and technology organisations, with expertise in materials joining and engineering processes. TWI specialises in innovation, knowledge transfer and in solving problems across all aspects of manufacturing, fabrication and whole-life integrity management. In addition, a successful international Training and Examinations programme sees 25,000 students trained each year in welding and inspection technologies across many industry sectors including shipbuilding. TWI has a history of supporting companies in the maritime sector with welding and bonding of metallic and composite materials, modelling of ship structures and non-destructive inspection of vessels.
