This paper shows several new techniques to support the hydrodynamic design of a submarine and elaborates how these techniques offer new possibilities to improve the hydrodynamic performance of submarines. With these new tools , it is expected that hydrodynamics can keep up with requirements of the navy to have shorter design time and perhaps a little less experience.
