Van Oossanen Academy
‘ENROl’ in the Van Oossanen Academy today!
We’ve been studying and researching virtually every aspect of vessel performance for over forty years now. In that time, we’ve accumulated a wealth of expertise relating to fluid dynamics and naval architecture.
And it’s not something we’re looking to keep to ourselves, which is why we set up the Van Oossanen Academy as a forum for sharing and disseminating this knowledge.
Download one or more of our publications if you’d like to further your understanding of the physics underlying the design and performance of a wide range of waterborne vessels.
The science of sailing
Our founder, Peter van Oossanen, handed over the reins of the Van Oossanen group of companies to Perry van Oossanen and Niels Moerke in 2012.
But that didn’t mean he left the world of boats, ships and yachts behind him. On the contrary, it gave him the opportunity to devote himself to a lifelong ambition – writing a book on his favourite subject: The Science of Sailing.
We gladly share our expertise and experience with anyone interested in the fields of hydrodynamics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and naval architecture.
Our papers are freely available for download – subject to copyright restrictions, of course!
We’ve accumulated a wealth of expertise relating to hydrodynamics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and naval architecture – knowledge we gladly share with eager young graduate engineers – like you – as part of your professional development.
