Faced with pressure to comply with increasingly stringent customer requirements and environmental regulations, ship designers must find new ways to decrease emissions levels and improve energy efficiency. Even small improvements in energy consumption may lead to significant cost savings and a competitive advantage. Designing an aerodynamically efficient superstructure translates into increased fuel efficiency, passenger comfort, and operational safety on the vessel.

Design by testing is time-consuming, expensive, and cannot keep up with the current competitive landscape. Our simulation-based design approach to marine aerodynamics provides a streamlined, automated methodology to understanding the vessel superstructure and enables you to rapidly optimize your design for realistic operational conditions.

Our aerodynamic solutions enable you to:

  • Improve all aspects of vessel aerodynamic performance in a virtual wind tunnel
  • Predict wind loading on vessel superstructure and confirm structural stability
  • Minimize effects from exhaust gas emission and ensure regulatory compliance.
  • Comply with helideck safety regulations and improve operational safety, including under extreme operating conditions.
