Stepped planing hulls enable the feasibility of running at relatively low drag-lift ratio by means of achieving more optimal trim angle at high speeds than a similar non-stepped hull. Furthermore, stepped planing hulls ensure good dynamic stability and seakeeping qualities at high speeds. However, there is no precise method to analyze these hulls over the full range of operating speeds. For the ab ... More

In the naval field, the prototype of the ship is usually the ship herself, therefore a detailed simulation framework is becoming an essential tool to be used as a testbed in the design process. The same approach could be also applied for training phase, giving to the ... More

The continuous increase of offshore operation in deep or ultra-deep waters, makes, for modern units, Dynamic Positioning (DP) analysis mandatory since early design stage. The necessity to provide reliable solutions for the DP system to mount on board in order to maintain position requires the implementation of simulation codes to reproduce the dynamic behaviour of the unit under variable environme ...

It is well known that during the life-cycle the growth of the ship weight is one of the main source of the performance-loss. Stern flaps have been used in many recent designs of transom stern vessels, in particular by the US Navy, to increase top speed or to realize improvements in fuel economy over the operating range. Furthermore, stern flap implementation has also become a practical retrofit on ... More

The development of IMO second generation intact stability criteria is based on a multilevel approach. In each level accuracy of analysis is increased and if a possible vulnerability is detected next level is applied. A ship, depending on its characteristics and external conditions, may be considered vulnerable to one or more stability failure modes. For each stability failure mode, the study wil ... More

Targets of the surface treatments of marine hulls have always been to preserve the structural capacity of the hull envelope and to maintain a smooth and clean external surface, thus minimizing the frictional component of motion resistance. These objectives are pursued since a couple of millennia by fighting the chemical and biological phenomena inducing various forms of degradation in the hull b ... More

Added resistance in irregular waves is generally calculated as the mean value with wave spectrum and frequency response of the added resistance in regular waves. In the calculation, the added resistance in regular waves is assumed to be proportional to square of wave height based on the wave theory. However, from the experiment it is not always proportional. Therefore, the mean value from the calc ... More

Today, the primary source of propeller power is the diesel engine, and the power requirement and rate of revolution very much depend on the ship’s hull form and the propeller design. Therefore, in order to arrive at a solution that is as optimal as possible, some general knowledge is essential as to the principal ship and diesel engine parameters that influence the propulsion system.
