HYDROCourses is the newest innovation from HydroComp, Inc.
Our new HYDROCourses were designed to provide clear and consistent content and to facilitate easy-to understand delivery of typically complex topics. These courses will sharpen your existing proficiencies - or even build new skills - while providing practical and insightful knowledge. Explore key subjects about hydrodynamics and propellers in a flexible on-demand format, so learning is at your own pace and convenience.
Newly Added Courses
This certificate course is valuable for propulsion equipment vendors and vessel designers. This course will introduce the hydrodynamics of propeller nozzles and the implications of different nozzle styles.
This certificate course is appropriate for propeller repair shops, propulsion equipment vendors, naval architects, and boat builders seeking repitch knowledge.
Engine Power Curves
This certificate course will review how a full engine power curve is needed to properly evaluate vessel performance in off-design and dynamic conditions.
