Thanks to our extensive experience and vessel database, we can provide a cost effective solution to evaluate and optimise the efficiency and performance of the hull form (draught, skeg, bulb size and form, transom shape, curvature characteristics of the waterline etc.), at an early design stage, minimising the cost of model testing.
The result is that less power is required to move the ship, it's environmental impact is reduced and cost savings are generated.
Visualisation of the waves pattern, wetted surface, wake, pressure field, and display of the flow streamlines.
Local flow visualisation like transom effect, cross flow, propeller-hull interaction, etc.
Optimal transversal and longitudinal outrigger position for multihull vessels.
Calculation of hydro-aerodynamic effects: Real time calculation of the dynamic pressure on the hull, total lift force, drag force and moments generated on the hydro and aero parts of the vessel.
