Resilient Ship Design Course 2024
Join us from 17-21 June 2024 in Rotterdam for TNO’s course on resilient design of ships against underwater and above water threats.
- 13:00 (CET)
Wilhelminakade 137, 3072 AP Rotterdam
Five days of in depth and valuable theory will be combined with demonstrations and examples of implementation. This tenth edition of the course introduces new case studies and workshops, linking theory to actual incidents and ship design. TNO welcomes internationally acclaimed guest speakers from NL MoD. Don’t miss this perfect opportunity to learn the latest on modeling, simulation, experiments, practical solutions and innovative developments in resilient naval combatant design.
Although warships have several layers of defence, history has shown a multitude of incidents where these have all failed resulting in battle damage of the ship. Much can be done in the design of the ship to provide an adequate level of resilience against anti-ship missiles, UNDEX threats, shaped charges, gunfire or asymmetric threats.
The course is aimed at:
- Navy personnel
- Survivability experts
- Designers of naval vessel
- Naval ship manufacturing industry
- Managers of new naval projects
- Project engineers who make specifications of naval equipment and installations
- Engineers who monitor naval building or upgrade projects
- Technical procurement officers
- Classification societies
Purpose of the course
The main purpose of the course is to understand the basics of designing against modern above water and underwater threats. Participants will learn the principles of ship survivability, so that they are able to design themselves, to communicate with specialists, to tackle an underwater shock problem or to deal with above water threats. The knowledge can also be applied to upgrade ships for new threats.
The programme of the five day course can be found in this flyer (pdf).

Data-driven approach increases road maintenance efficiency and sustainability
The detailed mapping of the load-bearing capacity of all national roads will enable more proactive, efficient, and sustainable maintenance. This data-driven approach to the road network is one of the projects within the Agreements Framework of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (IenW), Rijkswaterstaat, and TNO.
How existing homes are given energy label A++++
Existing houses have to become more energy efficient. TNO and partners came up with an innovative solution that also uses the exterior walls of homes to extract heat from solar radiation.
In2Innovation: Digital replicas with predictive capability
In this episode, we speak to Joep Paulissen, a consultant in the area of ‘digital twins’ – digital replicas of structures, with predictive capability.
In2Innovation: Recycling of waste wood
At TNO, we are In2Innovation. In this series, you will meet the TNO employee behind the innovation. What do they do and what impact does their work have on society? Armed with a blue pop filter, Camilla van Wirdum takes us to all corners of the organisation. In this episode, we talk to Jan de Jong, Wood in Construction project leader, about how a CT scanner contributes to reuse of wood.
