Dr Bogdan Ganea is employed as a Naval Architect at Brookes Bell Safety at Sea Ltd since June 2008.
Prior to that, he was a senior researcher of Icepronav (Shipbuilding Design and Research Institute) in Galaţi, Romania. His career spans over 30 years in the field of ship experimental and numerical hydrodynamics. He developed CFD code for steady and unsteady propeller calculation by boundary element method presented at the 22nd ITTC Propulsion Committee Propeller RANS/Panel Method Workshop, 5-6 April 1998, Grenoble.
Since 2009, Dr Ganea has led the development of our software for manoeuvring simulation, BBSIM, which has been deployed in numerous commercial projects for accident analysis and berthing / unberthing simulations. In 2011, this code was also deployed in the SAFEPORT research project for ship trajectory optimisation. He assists in the development of CFD involvement in manoeuvring simulation.
Dr Ganea’s experience also includes speed-power and manoeuvring sea trials in terms of conduct and data processing. Due to his background in propulsion, he is particularly involved in speed-power sea trials data analysis.
He has written expert repots, attended expert meetings and given evidence in a LMAA hearing.
