 Manta Marine Design CFD and Naval Architecture Calculations

'Naval Architecture' is a general name for a set of unique and specialised engineering skills used in marine design. We are trained and qualified naval architects. We are a member of the New Zealand Division of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA)

 

Some typical naval architecture disciplines that we offer:

  • Design of the hullshape (linesplan)
  • Resistance and propulsion - including resistance with CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics)
  • Scantling calculations (dimensioning structural parts) - Including FEA (Finite Element Analysis)
  • Weight calculation
  • Hydrostatics and stability calculation (intact & damaged)
  • Calculation of Self Righting / Roll Over Capabilities
  • Calculation of Heeling due to using Cranes on vessels and barges - Checking maximum capacity of Crane lifting and reach
  • Tank arrangements and optimised loading conditions
  • Classification related issues and calculations (CE, Lloyds, BV, GL, MNZ, MOSS, Maritime New Zealand, etc)
  • Sailplans and rigging details (for sailing ships)
  • Conduction of stability tests (inclinating test)
  • Making of stability booklets
