HydroComp NavCad, internationally recognized for resistance and propulsion prediction for naval architects, can also leverage analysis capabilities with features that support optimized hull form and propulsion system design


HydroComp NavCad may be most well-known for its library of parametric-statistical hull form and propulsion system models (often called ā€œ1Dā€ models). The recent introduction of the Premium Edition now brings a higher-order distributed-analytical (ā€œ2Dā€) hull form analysis to design optimization. Called the Analytical Distributed-Volume Method (ADVM), the scope of design optimization can now offer both a first order assessment and an analytical calculation of a more refined definition of hull form.
