AKPA - Propulsor design and analysis software ››
AKPA is a suite of numerical tools for the design and analysis of marine propulsors developed by MARINTEK in cooperation with State Marine Technical University (SMTU) of St. Petersburg, Russia. The main purpose of the analysis program aKPa is to perform calculation of propulsor of given geometry in open water, or in user defined inflow field (e.g., oblique flow or threedimensional hull wake).
ProPulse - Empirical Prediction of Pressure Pulses ››
Magnitude of pressure pulse induced by a propeller is an important design criterion. This is causing both noise and vibration. Noise level is essential in case of naval and passenger vessels, whereas high vibration level impacts all types of ship structure. Therefore prediction of pressure pulse has been a point of interest for many decades.
ShipX - Integrated Ship Design Tool: A Hydrodynamic Workbench ››
During the last few years MARINTEK has developed a hydrodynamic workbench called ShipX. The development has been a part of the strategic research programme SKIPRO 2001. The basic idea behind shipX is to make a platform that integrates all kinds of hydrodynamic analysis into an integrated design tool.
ShipX – Manoeuvring: A manoeuvring prediction program for the early design stage ››
Compliance of a new ship design with the IMO standards should be evaluated in the early design stage when changes to the design can be made at low cost. This requires a reliable and easy to use calculation and prediction tool. This plug-in has been developed to be such a tool.
ShipX - Ship Speed and Powering: Predicting Calm Water Resistance and Performance ››
MARINTEK has integrated a program for calm water resistance and performance in the hydrodynamic workbench ShipX. The motivation for developing this software was to enable the shipX workbench environment to provide the user with the ability to calculate calm water performance as well as speed loss in waves within one product.
ShipX – Ship speed and Powering: Predicting Speed Loss in a Seaway ››
MARINTEK has integrated a program for numerical calculation of involuntary speed loss in waves in the hydrodynamic workbench ShipX.
ShipX – Station Keeping: Predicting Station Keeping Performance of Ships ››
MARINTEK has developed a program for numerical calculation of station keeping performance of ships. This program is integrated in the hydrodynamic workbench ShipX.
