Naval Architecture

Our experienced naval architects provide solutions and applied knowledge to enhance vessel performance across the system life cycle. These solutions include quantifying the advantages of different concepts, optimising the propeller design for a mature hull and managing stability margins for in-service ships. Our experts combine real-world experience with deep technical knowledge to provide optimal solutions.

We use state-of-the-art technology and world-leading test facilities to offer a range of Naval Architecture services including:

  • Design Services: Concept design space exploration/feasibility studies, powering predictions, design and construction of test models, computational maneuvering performance predictions, vulnerability and survivability analysis.
  • Stability compliance management systems: Design compliance assessment and weight/growth management.
  • Structural Assessment: Finite Elements Analysis (FEA) and structural optimisation.
  • Naval Architecture and Survivability Software: Paramarine® and SURVIVE software, structural analysis and advanced FEA.
