3D Modeling and Naval Architecture
Develop your concept
Following our workflow, we can expand upon the initial concept, exploring different possibilities and potential outcomes, and refining it until it becomes a clear and actionable concept that can be put into practice.
Hull shape development
The process of hull shape development involves the creation of a design that meets specific criteria, such as size, speed, maneuverability, and stability. This design is then refined through various iterations, with each iteration incorporating feedback and adjustments based on computer simulations, model testing, and real-world observations.
Through this iterative process, a refined and optimized hull shape is developed, which can significantly improve the vessel's performance and efficiency. A well-designed hull shape can reduce fuel consumption, increase speed, and improve maneuverability, which can have a significant impact on the vessel's operational costs and environmental footprint.
Using the latest software and design concepts, we are able to develop four different types of hulls (shown below).
Once we get the basic 3D hull shape we can modify it according to client demands and wishes.
Hydrostatic analysis and lines plan
The hydrostatic analysis is used to determine the vessel's stability and buoyancy, while the lines plan provides a detailed depiction of the hull shape and characteristics.
The hydrostatic analysis provides critical information regarding the weight distribution, center of gravity, and stability of the vessel. This analysis is used to ensure that the vessel can operate safely in various sea conditions without capsizing or losing stability.
Similarly, the lines plan provides vital information on the vessel's hull form, including the waterline, draft, and displacement. It is an important aspect of ship design and construction, as it determines the vessel's speed, maneuverability, and performance in the water.
Through stability curve analysis, we can determine the vessel's maximum righting moment, which represents the maximum angle at which the vessel can heel before losing stability. This information is essential in designing and operating vessels safely, especially in harsh weather conditions where the vessel may be subjected to significant forces that can compromise its stability.
Furthermore, stability curve analysis can help to optimize vessel design by identifying areas where improvements can be made to increase the vessel's stability and safety.
By accurately predicting a vessel's speed, we can optimize the vessel's design and operating conditions to achieve the desired performance and efficiency. This can include adjusting the vessel's hull shape, propulsion system, or operational parameters to improve speed and reduce fuel consumption.
Preliminary 3D model
The Preliminary 3D model serves as a visual aid for ship designers, naval architects, engineers, and stakeholders to understand better and communicate the design concept. It helps in assessing the feasibility of the design, making early design decisions, and identifying potential issues or improvements before progressing to more detailed design phases.
