For hydrodynamic design and analysis of ships and other marine vehicles, design engineers turn to NavCad for the prediction of attainable speed and range, power demand, fuel consumption, even noise. NavCad provides the critical feedback you need in early-stage design.

New features available in NavCad 2018: Standard and Premium
• New Software-Based security options (omitting the need for a USB dongle)
• Substantial time savings running calculations
• Scale correction for improvements to full-scale MAU propeller performance prediction
• Calculation of mass fuel rate
• Improved hull-propulsor prediction for submarine and SWATH
• “Longitudinal Wave Source” plot for the “Advanced Distributed Volume Method” (ADVM), which shows longitudinal shape influence on wave-making resistance [Premium]
• Support for dual-fuel (MGO, MDO, HFO, LNG) [Premium]
• Prediction of CO2 greenhouse gas [Premium]


The new NavCad Premium Edition features for dual fuel, calculation of CO2 production, and the longitudinal wave source plots are very significant, especially for LNG vessels.

NavCad allows the user to achieve simulation of the whole Hull-Propulsor-Drive-Engine system now in seconds, not hours.
