MICAD is a Partner of the UBE 2 project (Underwater Blue Efficiency 2) which, as a research and development project in the field of Maritime Technologies, is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The activities of the project are, in fact, one of the priorities of the Regional Operational Programme, Objective “Investments for growth and employment” 2014-2020 or Axis 1 – “Strengthening research, technological development and innovation”, Action 1.3 – “Support for collaborative R&D activities for the development of new sustainable technologies, new products and services”.

UBE 2, launched on 1 December 2018, aims to define a scientific method for assessing the quality of the entire ship project in relation to the vibratory phenomenon and predict the triggering of phenomena. The nature of the phonemena is strongly non-linear, the origin is not completely clear neither the deep nature, nor the root causes that generate them. Correlations between the vibrational behaviour, measured under real operating conditions, and the variations in the fluid dynamic range of the living work will be sought, with particular interest in the propeller and all the appendices. 

Through fluid dynamic simulations we will try to obtain the physical descriptions missing from the measurements made in real life. Analysing a minimum of three pleasure yachts, different in size and displacement, a multivariable response surface of the vibratory phenomenon will be established, which can be exploited and extended to all planing boat projects.

The final objective of the project is to understand the physical vibratory phenomenon and obtain a design method that allows to mitigate or prevent the emergence of this phenomenon by identifying a reduced set of parameters and related thresholds of eligibility.
