How to go about checking hydrodynamics for a catamaran boat?
I'm desining a catamaran boat. The dimensions for each hull :
Length = 14 ft. Beam = 2.25 ft . Draft = 1.25 ft
The catamaran should have a payload capacity of 4 people.
Now that I've designed a single hull, do I check the hydrodynamics? Or should I build the entire catamaran (with central platform etc.) and then do so?
Also, how exactly do I use the hydrodynamics and resistance tools to make sure the design is okay?
I'm a beginner at boat design running a deadline for project submission. Please do help!
What were the requirements outlined for this project ?
The catamaran is going to be used as a USV for environmental research such as measuring pollution levels etc. We will be testin it in calm waters at first and then possibly deploying it in the sea.
I designed the cat based on an existing design I found online.
