3D Propeller CAD: Intro to Concepts, Tools, and Formats

3D CAD models are the standard for communicating propeller design data. These are used in various forms for visualization, performance simulation, and manufacturing/machining operations. In this half-hour webinar, we will review the basic concepts for preparing...

Ducted propellers: Nozzle selection and hydrodynamics

Nozzles can be an incredibly valuable partner for a propeller. When used appropriately, these non-moving devices can supplement a propeller’s thrust for some applications – but not all. How can a non-moving device generate thrust? And what nozzle type is best for our...

Planing Craft in NavCad: Data, Settings, and Options

We all know about planing hull drag prediction and typical hull form parameters – such as deadrise, LCG, chine beam. But what about the longitudinal and transverse variation in deadrise? Or how catamaran forms affect planing predictions? What is the influence of...

Rudder Design: Practical and Analytical

We all know that rudders are a vital piece of our vessel’s operational equipment. But what determines the best type of rudder to use? How do we ensure that the rudder and propeller function well together? Can we use analytical tools to optimize a design? This...
