The fluid dynamics study the interaction between the vessel and its environment. The possibility of studying this interaction during the design process can be carried out quickly and economically using computer simulation programs.
Wave generation simulation
The study of wave generation is vital during the shape definition phase of a project, as it reveals possible defects that are easily correctable during this stage, but very expensive or impossible to correct once the boat has been built.
The calculation of ship resistance allows to establish the necessary power to achieve the specified speed and the optimisation of the power plant weight and the amount of fuel to achieve the established range.
Another key point to consider for the establishment of a propulsive plant is the efficiency of the propulsive train, which analyzes how much of the power generated is transformed into useful thrust for the vessel. Many factors influence this efficiency as the type of propulsion, the transmission system, the propeller itself and the positioning of the various components.
Engine Room Ventilation
The engine rooms tend to be very small to use the space for accommodation. This creates access problems for the maintenance of the components, for the supply of air in quantity and quality for the combustion and supply and extraction of air for the cooling of the components installed in the compartment.
The computer simulation of the ventilation systems ensures a distribution of temperatures that allows the correct operation of the installed machinery
