    Hi!

    A new excel engine to predict the Calm Water resistance of a Ship based on Holtrop and Mennen(1978) is now available for download on www.thenavalarch.com.

    Features:
    • Simple and easy to use
    • Calculates all the different components, viz., Frictional Resistance, Wave Resistance, Additional Resistance due to Bulbous Bow/Transom Stern, Correlation Resistance, Appendage Resistance
    • Applicable to ship shape vessels

    Version 1 launched with Speed-Power Curve

    Hi!

    The version 1 of the Resistance Predictor Excel sheet has been launched. It can now generate a speed-power curve for different speeds input by the user.

    To generate the speed-power curve :

    Once you input all the values, just go to the worksheet "Speeds" and click on the 'Input Speeds' button to input the speeds at which you want resistance to be calculated (they should be in ascending order). Once you have input the speeds, the curve will be automatically generated in the "Graph" worksheet.

    Best regards
