Resistance & Propulsion
The MARIN R&D team "Resistance & Propulsion" develops knowledge and tools in the field of Resistance and Propulsion.

Its mission is to develop and implement:
• Validated tools (both numerical and experimental) to determine the performance of the hull-propulsor system. Performance in this respect relates to powering and cavitation nuisance such as noise and vibrations as well as cavitation erosion.
• Design and optimization techniques for propeller and propeller-hull configurations. The latter system includes Energy Saving Devices.
• Knowledge on the physics of cavitation and cavitation nuisance, ventilation and air lubrication.

The ultimate goal of the team is to visualize trade-offs between the ship’s fuel efficiency and its cavitation nuisance for the ship yard, designer or operator.
