22nd Numerical Towing Tank Symposium (NuTTS 2019)

Tomar, Portugal, 29th September – 1st October 2019


The 22nd Numerical Towing Tank Symposium is organized by WavEC – Offshore Renewables. This conference focuses on the numerical simulation of flows around ships and offshore structures, with a strong link to realistic applications.

The objective of the event is to provide a forum for informal discussions among experts in the field and to disseminate latest results. Younger workers and Ph.D. students are especially encouraged to participate.


  • Nonlinear flows around marine structures (LES, RANSE, Euler with or w/o free surface)
  • Free-surface flows around marine structures (3-d ship seakeeping, free-surface viscous flows)
  • Simulation of ocean renewable energy devices (wave, tidal, floating wind, floating solar)
  • Related topics (validation experiments, numerical techniques, grid generation, etc)


The event will be held at Hotel dos Templários, in Tomar, Portugal. 


Instructions and guidelines for preparing the abstracts and full paper are provided below. An early reply will help us in organising the event smoothly and is much appreciated. For the early feedback, a tentative title or topic will suffice. The extended abstracts of the proposed talks will be directly reproduced in pdf proceedings. Work in progress, encountered problems, etc. should be discussed in an open, informal atmosphere (no ties!) among colleagues.



Following the tradition of previous NuTTS events, the fees will be kept low to allow a maximum number of scientists to attend. The registration fees including accommodation (3 nights, including 30th September) and all meals during the symposium will be:

. 350 Euro for PhD candidates and students

. 400 Euro for authors

. 450 Euro for other participants


Please use this registration form to attend the event

The list of participants and the proceedings will be published at a later stage.




Early feedback (optional): 31st March 2019

Extended Abstracts received: 30th June 2019

Final version: 15th September 2019

Payment received: 15 July 2019
