NICOP-RDO 2 (Stochastic SBD for Reduction of Added-Powering/Motions/Slamming for Surface Ships in Real Seas)

The project addresses the development of high-fidelity stochastic simulation-based design (SBD) methodologies for challenging real-world applications. The focus is on (1) design space variability breakdown and dimensionality reduction, (2) dynamic metamodels for uncertainty quantification (UQ) and optimization; (3) global optimization algorithms, addressing continuous distributions of environmental/operational conditions. Since the early design phase, a significant portion of the operating envelope of complex naval systems is optimized under a variety of conditions, meeting the interests of the “Platform Design and Survivability” US Naval S&T Focus Area. The research is conducted with the University of Iowa, and in collaboration with NATO STO AVT-252 “Stochastic Design Optimization for Naval and Aero Military Vehicles”.
