Content:

The lecture starts with the definition of the early design phase and the importance of first principle approaches. The
reasons for process reengineering when such kinds of methods are introduced is demonstrated. Several numerical
modelling techniques are introduced and discussed for the following design relevant topics:
- Hullform representation, fairing and interpolation
- Hullform design by modifying parent hulls
- Modelling of subdivison
- Volumetric and stability calculations
- Mass distributions and longitudinal strength
- Hullform Design by CFD- techniques
- Propulsor and Rudder Design by CFD Techniques
