2) BK21 Education and Research Center for Creative Offshore Plant Engineers
Our business project aims to cultivate top-tier creative human resources in relation to commercialization of the “big WIG (Wing In Ground) effect craft” in Marine Technology field for the first time in the world and lead researches on core technology necessary for mutual cooperation of joint business groups. The purpose of our project is to advance as a Global Center by prosperity of interdisciplinary convergence between naval architecture and ocean engineering and industrial engineering. Moreover, our ultimate goal is nurturing the Master’s and Ph. D level research workforce on 6 core technologies in naval architecture and ocean engineering and industrial engineering.
3) LRET-Funded Research Center
The LRET-Funded Research Center (LRETC) was launched in 2008 with the research grant of the Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust. Through a national competition, LRETC was chosen by the Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust as the center of excellence for fluid-structure interaction. The main undertaking of LRETC is the development of break-through technologies for the hydroelasticity problems in marine engineering. Primary research areas include sloshing, springing, and slamming-whipping problems, and research is scheduled to expand to cover emerging issues such as green-ship technology starting in 2012. LRETC is also actively involved in collaborative education and research with foreign universities, including the University of Southampton and the National University of Singapore.
4) Advanced Marine Engineering Center
The Advanced Marine Engineering Center(AMEC) was established in 2009 under the support of the Korean Ministry of Knowledge and Economy, with the mission of developing sloshing technology. Sloshing analysis is one of the key technologies used in the design of ships and offshore structures for liquefied natural gas(LNG).
On rough seas the sloshing phenomenon can cause severe structural damage on internal tank structures, and hence an accurate prediction of sloshing load and resultant hydroelastic structural response is an essential element in the design of LNG carriers and LNG-related offshore platforms. AMEC is equipped with a world-class experimental facility for sloshing experiments, and an additional excitation platform is under installation, which will be the largest in the world. Research on theoretical and numerical analyses is also carried out for the strength assessment of LNG cargo containment systems. Currently seven professors in five Korean universities are affiliated in AMEC.
5) Advanced Naval Vessels Research Laboratory
Advanced Naval Vessels Research Laboratory(ANVL) was established in 2012 with the support from the Ministry of National Defense and Agency for Defense Development(ADD).
As a national military specialized research laboratory, ANVL has the missions of developing the core technologies for the advanced future ship forms of Korean Navy's main-force ships. ANVL is composed of three research teams: 1)Design optimization for space planning, and stealth ship design with radar cross section(RCS), 2)High speed and low resistance multi-hull shapes research, and underwater radiated noise analysis, 3)Seakeeping and maneuvering performance of future ships. Involving these challenging research topics, currently nine professors, seven researchers and fifty graduate students participate in ANVL.
