LINCOLN is an EU Horizon 2020 research project of 36 month duration (1st October 2016 – 30th September 2019) using innovative design methodologies and tools for the development of three types of completely new vessels concepts through dynamic simulation model testing in the maritime sector.
In developing the three new vessels (a Multi-platform Catamaran, a Module Based High Speed Patrol Boat Platform, an Emergency Response and Recovery Vessels series for Coastal Rescue activities), LINCOLN will use:
A lean fact based design model approach
which combines real operative data at sea with lean methodology, to support the development and implementation of the vessel concepts;
IT customized tools
to enable the acquisition and usage of field data, coming from an IoT platform
High performance computing simulating
To demonstrate feasibility of the 3 vessels concept a fluid dynamics and structural simulation test, using high performance computing, will be performed on each of them.
