NAVAL SUBSURFACE VESSELs

HYDRODYNAMIC DESIGN SERVICES

MARIN, as an independent research institute, can provide answers in any phase of your naval submarine or subsurface vessel design or operation regarding all hydrodynamic related issues. Our hydrodynamic experience can be used to identify risks related to hydrodynamic and nautical aspects in an early phase of the design assure your naval submarine design will comply with requirements.

NAVAL SUBSURFACE VESSEL HYDRODYNAMIC DESIGN SERVICES

Our services can create tailor-made products according to your specific submarine vessel. MARIN has a considerable track record in evaluating performance and behaviour of submarines and carrying out model and full scale tests with subsurface vessels. In the last decade we investigated submarine design and behaviour not only for the Dutch defence but also worldwide. MARIN can provide answers through simulations and model test on performance, cavitation, noise, vibration, manoeuvring and seakeeping, including analysis of the results and advise on how to improve the design and avoid risks. Besides this, MARIN can set up training for special conditions and simulate the submarine operation in a complex environment.

BB2 DATASET

As mentioned in the Pacific 2015 paper by Overpelt et al., free running model tests data were previously made available for download. However, due to Export Licence restrictions, this is not possible anymore.
