HULL FORM OPTIMIZATION

 

 

 

FLOWTECH has performed a large number of pilot projects over the years that involved optimization of hull forms. With the Naval Architecture background, the knowledge of hydrodynamics and CFD methods accumulated over the years our staff can perform the tasks efficiently and with high degree of confidence.

The optimization include typically wave making and viscous resistance minimization as well as maximization of the propulsive efficiency. Our experience shows that for many ships the best way is to consider the delivered power as the main objective, see On The Importance Of The Objective Function And Scale Effects In Hull Design Optimization , M. Orych, L. Broberg. 2018.
