Software and Consulting Knowledge for Marine Professionals


HydroComp, Inc. will return to Mumbai in October 2017 for INMEX – SMM India! This event is the largest international trade show and conference for the Shipping and Maritime Industry in India. We are excited to once again be in the country to meet customers and continue building our network.

You’re invited!


Join Adam Kaplan, HydroComp’s Senior Project Engineer, and Malika Khatri, our local representative from Red Offshore Industries, for SMM India 2017, 3-5 October at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre, stand F68.

In addition to exhibiting, Adam Kaplan will host two, one-hour technical seminars in the Admiralty Theatre:

Technical Seminars

“Demystifying Propeller Design”
Tuesday, 3 October, 12:45 
This presentation starts with a primer on the essential elements common to all propellers, and then it will examine ways in which different propeller characteristics and geometries affect their performance. It will also compare and break down the many different styles of propellers – conventional and ducted, controllable-pitch and contra-rotating, feathering, folding, cupped, surface-piercing, and even super-cavitating.

“Analysis of Emissions and Fuel Options During Early-stage Design”
Wednesday, 4 October, 12:45
This presentation will discuss design-side investigations and their outcomes. New calculations proved vital to the success of the project, including a new speed-prediction method that assisted in the search for drag reduction, multi-mode duty-profile optimization, and early-stage assessment of LNG and dual-fuel fuel options. The presentation will also address reduction in the ship’s carbon footprint with full duty-profile assessment of CO2 emissions.

Previous Visit

April 2017

Thank you to all that joined us to learn about the various HydroComp software products for marine vessel speed and power prediction, propeller design and analysis, and propeller manufacturing and repair. Adam Kaplan, HydroComp’s Senior Project Engineer for propeller design tools, introduced the group to NavCad®, PropExpert®, PropCad®, and PropElements®. Brief technical case study demonstrated the application of the tools for a passenger vessel engine refit, bulbous bow design, and propeller design for a new fishing vessel. This event was held in association with the Institute of Marine Engineers – Mumbai Branch and our local agent, Red Offshore.
