the resistance and power requirements for any Maxsurf
design using industry standard prediction techniques.
When designing a powered vessel using Maxsurf, Hullspeed
provides a wide range of calculation methods to help you
estimate the resistance and powering requirements of the
hull. A range of industry standard algorithms are provided,
allowing you to select the methods most appropriate for
the hull shape you are designing.
provided in Hullspeed include: Savitsky pre and post planing;
Lahtiharju for planing vessels; Holtrop for fast displacement
hulls; Series 60 for large ships; van Oortmerssen for
full form hulls such as tugs and trawlers; and Delft systematic
yacht series for sailing yachts. Hullspeed can automatically
read in any Maxsurf design file and measure the required
input parameters from it. You also have the option to
override these automatically calculated values to fine
tune the calculations to match your requirements.
