IS14 - Hydrodynamic Characteristics of Novel Aquaculture Facilities in Open Sea
The open sea has a vast space for aquaculture and a suitable environment for water
exchange, which is a good aquaculture area. Nevertheless, the complex environmental
conditions in the open sea pose a significant threat to the safety of aquaculture facilities,
which are susceptible to rough winds, severe waves and strong currents. Recently,
conceptual aquaculture facility designs in various shapes and configurations have been
proposed for open sea. Presentations on assessment about hydrodynamic characteristic of
these novel conceptual designs are essential to validate innovative offshore aquaculture
facility design before construction and deployment.
The objective of the session is to facilitate collaboration and exchange of expertise
between researches involved in numerical, experimental modelling and design of
hydrodynamic characteristics of all kinds of novel aquaculture facilities in open sea,
including novel offshore aquaculture platform, integration of aquaculture farming and
ocean renewable energy system, and other innovative multi-purpose aquaculture
facilities. We invite papers on numerical analysis, testing, model-based design and
artificial intelligence approach of such systems.
