Micro bubble drag reduction

2020 – 2021

This project has been prepared by five Mechanical students of the Arab academy for science and technology and maritime transport as a part of their Graduation Project requirements.

This project aims to reduce the drag force of a designed KCS ship with holes in the bottom of it. This design matched with appropriate research and accurate analysis, an advanced design assembly of the ship with the objective of getting improved performance within the time bound and available resources to meet with the broad aspect of the project objective.

Graph and charts were chosen as suitable way to analyze data output according to different parameter inputs.

We used references in our project varies between several books, scientific papers and sites.
