Evaluation of thruster vibration with virtual modelling

Customer: ABB Marine Oy


Challenge: Prediction of thruster vibrations in real operational conditions is a challenge.


Solution: VTT and ABB developed modelling methods which covered the most significant factors and phenomena affecting on the vibration behaviour of the Azipod thruster. The results were verified by full-scale experiments.
 

  

Key benefits:  

  • Capability to reliably predict vibration induced loads
  • Faster R&D process
  • Radically increased capabilities for effective troubleshooting
