Powerful CAD systems and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods have considerably improved the designers position to quickly, yet sufficiently reliably, evaluate and improve various aspects of the ships performance. Automatic hull form optimization based on use of CFD seems a desirable next step.
