Client: Brisbane City Council

Wave wake assessment for proposed new ferry designs

As part of a tender evaluation for its next generation of Brisbane River passenger ferries, Brisbane City Council engaged AMCS to assess the wave wake generated by various vessel options.

Using a proprietary numerical modeling Wave Wake Prediction tool, Associate Professor Gregor Macfarlane assessed each of the vessel options against the wave wake benchmark set by the Council’s existing ferries.

Based on design specifications, each vessel was assessed at four speeds and three finite water depths.

Detailed results were delivered by AMCS to Brisbane City Council to support their tender evaluation process.
