We can provide an accurate estimation of a ship’s required power in accordance with the energetic efficiencies supplied by the propulsion system manufacturers, with only small differences compared to towing tank results.
Cost Benefit - Dynamic Trim curve: The calculation of moments and forces as function of speed, to optimise trim setting.
Cost Benefit - Payload Curves: For a given payload, all the corresponding power/speed curves can be evaluated.
KNUD E. HANSEN A/S has been chosen from NAPA to deliver the data needed for NAPA Optifloat.
Optifloat is a module within NAPA Loading Computer that help the operator to select the optimal loading condition for fuel saving in compliance with the vessel strenght and stability.
The optimal floating position in terms of hull resistance is calculated for different trims and loading conditions by CFD in place of model testing.
