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