Damen Naval and the Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA) have signed a contract for the hydrodynamic optimisation and an extensive series of model tests for the new 126-class (F126) frigates. The optimisation work and the tests constitute part of the early development...
Earlier this year, Hvide Sande Shipyard in Denmark won a public tender for the design and construction of a new 64-metre offshore patrol vessel. As the lifecycle costs and seakeeping characteristics are very important for this vessel, the shipyard worked with Hull...
Candela Speed Boat has developed an electric pleasure boat with hydrofoils. The hydrofoils lift the boat from the water when sailing, thereby reducing resistance. The weight of the batteries on board is offset by ultra-light hull materials. The company started...
In recent years, the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN) investigated the potential of a Rankine source code to predict the added resistance of ships in waves. In addition to investigation of accuracy issues inherent to the measured wave added resistance,...
Water depth is a crucial factor that affects a ship’s resistance, and thus influences fuel consumption and even determines the maximum navigating speed. Therefore, for ships designed to operate in shallow water, it is essential to consider its effects on ship...
