France Hosts the First Sino--French Workshop on the Communication and Cooperation of Numerical Tanks
March 22nd and 23rd, the first Sino-French Numerical Tanks Communication and Cooperation Workshop, jointly organized by HEU and Centrale Nantes, was held at the Centrale Nantes. The meeting deepened communication and cooperation between the two sides of the Chinese and French numerical tanks team, and further promoted the development of international numerical tanks research. China's numerical tanks team led by the Director of Numerical Tanks Innovation Special Management Committee Xia Guihua and Special Chief Designer Duan Wenyang, attended the meeting and signed a memorandum of the cooperation.
Professor Pierre Ferranr, from Centrale Nantes, presided over the workshop. The French representatives included Centrale Nantes, Bureau Veritas, and Hydrocean Corporation attended the workshop. Meanwhile, the representatives from the 702nd Institute of China's Ship Scientific Research Center, ShangHai and Shipping Research Institute, 708th Institute of China's State Ship Corporation (CSSC), DaLian University of Technology and ShangHai Jiao Tong University participated in the meeting.
Professor Pierre Ferrant delivered a welcome speech. He hopes that the meetings will develop understanding of each other's research progress, and he agreed to deepen the technical content of the numerical tanks
Director Xia Guihua also delivered a speech at the opening ceremony. He pointed out that the meeting plays an important role in sharing the latest research results of the international numerical tank, discussing cooperation between the two sides and promoting the development of international numerical tank research. The two sides should learn from each other and make progress together for a better and faster application of numerical tank technology to industry.
Special Chief Designer Duan Wenyang gave a general introduction about the project of the numerical tank in China. The two sides communicated well about the specific technology of numerical tank and signed a memorandum of cooperation. Both sides agreed to carry out the cooperation in the following areas which include: the joint cultivation of talents, exchange of physical model test database, virtual test results verification, virtual experimental system Bureau Veritas certification, and promoting government support and funding.
"The Special Innovative Project of Numerical Tank (stage one)" led by HEU, an investment of about 270 million yuan in total, is jointly approved by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Ministry of Finance in 2016. 702nd Institute of China's Ship Scientific Research Center ShangHai and Shipping Research Institute, 708th Institute of China's State Ship Corporation (CSSC), DaLian University of Technology and ShangHai Jiao Tong University, as the main participants, make up the cutting-edge national numerical tank research team in China.
