Heimli Ship Design

CFD calculations for ship resistance and wake

Customer: Heimli Ship Design
Related services: ship resistance & powering prediction; hull form optimization
Scope of work:
Powering prediction, hull streamlines and wakefiled calculation using viscous CFD code. The resistance values were postprocessed using NavCad to make a comprehensive analysis of ship performance. Furthermore, we carried out a CFD calculation of nominal wakefield, the velocity field in front of the propeller was supplied to the propeller designer for a wake adapted propeller design.

VICUSdt has cooperated in several projects with Heimli Ship Design, ensuring a good performance of its designs. A correct prediction, using CFD tools, is the first step to a successful project.
