MARIN recently supported French naval engineering company Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) in the development of a new set of lines for LNG carriers. Report relates how computational tools such as RAPID for wave making calculations in calm water and SHIPMO for seakeeping,were used in the preliminary stages before performing model tests. This in an effort to optimise and quantify the performance of the hull form.
