QDESP: Prediction of propulsive performance 推进性能预报

QDESP predicts the resistance and propulsion characteristics of displacement ships. The predictions are based on formulas obtained from a regression analysis on results of MARIN model experiments and sea trials. QDESP can be used to estimate the speed and propulsion power in the early design stage. Correlation with test or trial data of similar ships is possible. The test data can be used to derive the correlation allowance as input for a new design.


RAPID: Calculation of wave resistance and potential flow 兴波阻力和势流计算

The computer program RAPID calculates the steady inviscid flow around a ship hull, the wave pattern and the wave resistance. It solves the exact, fully non-linear potential flow problem by an iterative procedure, based on a raised-panel method. Since its initial development, RAPID has been routinely applied in practical ship hull design. Continuous further development has extended the applicability and improved the efficiency and accuracy. Today it is one of the best known codes worldwide in the field of resistance and flow. RAPID forms an integral part of MARIN’s consultancy services related to hull form improvements.


QPROP: Propeller design and analysis workflow solutions 螺旋桨设计和分析工作流解决方案

QPROP provides propeller design and analysis workflow solutions based on the Quaestor knowledge-based workflow framework. QPROP greatly reduces the time spent on iterative propeller design, analysis and reporting activities as all incorporated tools make use of the same pool of project-related input data and (intermediate) results.
The workflow is arranged on the basis of the tools that are included per software suite. Two standard suites are available, either combined or separately:
1. Propeller selection and design suite
2. Propeller analysis suite

1. 螺旋桨选型和设计套件
2. 螺旋桨分析套件

SHIPMA: Fast-time simulation program for ship manoeuvring 船舶操纵性快速仿真软件

The latest version of the fast–time simulation program SHIPMA is a joint development of MARIN’s nautical centre MSCN and Deltares. The combined contribution of these institutes is leading to a fit for purpose program to simulate the manoeuvring behaviour of vessels in ports and fairways.
In SHIPMA the vessels are steered by an autopilot which is capable of operating in the track keeping mode and the harbour manoeuvring mode, making it possible to perform typical harbour manoeuvres like turning, reverse sailing and berthing.


aNyMOOR.TERMSIM: Assessment of line and fender loads for moored tankers 油船系泊时缆绳与护舷材载荷评估

aNyMOOR.TERMSIM is a time domain simulation program to analyse the dynamic behaviour of a moored export tanker subject to wind, waves and current. The mooring system can be a Single Point Mooring (SPM), a Multi Buoy Mooring (MBM) or a jetty terminal. The program predicts the mooring loads and tanker motions when the system is exposed to operational environmental conditions.


DPCAP: Analysis of thruster capacity in dynamic positioning 动力定位过程中侧推器性能分析

Dynamic Positioning (DP) is coming more and more in use. Therefore, it is desirable to know a system’s capacity in an early design stage. To be able to do so MARIN developed the software program DPCAP, which generates so-called DP Capability plots. In these plots, the maximum sea state is shown at which a vessel can operate.


DIFFRAC: 3-D potential theory including wave diffraction 三维势流理论包含波浪绕射

DIFFRAC is a wave diffraction program capable of calculating the wave loads and motion responses of free floating or moored structures in regular waves, including their hydrodynamic interaction. The program is applicable to both shallow and deep water and has been validated against many physical model test results.


WINDOS: Assessment of wind loads on ships and offshore structures 作用在船舶和海上平台的风载荷评估

WINDOS is a computer program for the calculation of wind loads on offshore structures. The program has been developed to bridge the gap between the two common methods used for wind load prediction: the simple calculation models provided by the classification societies and model testing in a windtunnel. The program can handle arbitrary types of ships and offshore structures.
