Naval Architecture

HULL FORM MODELING

ARKYACHT’s naval architects develop the hull form in 3D -considering size limits, displacement, speed and stability- according to previous profile and layout drawings with using a combination of in-house knowledge, experience and computer-aided methods. The aim is to create a hull form that satisfy the overall performance requirements and Client’s expectations.

CFD & FORM OPTIMIZATION

ARKYACHT’s naval architects use state-of-the-art Computational Fluid Dynamics to optimize and finalize the hull form. An optimization study using CFD predicts actual wave patterns, underwater flow lines and pressure distribution to develop the optimum underwater body and predict speed and power.

STABILITY CALCULATIONS

Stability calculations will be done by ARKYACHT’s naval architects after weight calculations and defining the loading conditions. It is vital to verify compliance with stability criteria stipulated by Class Societies. Stability Booklet of the vessel will be also prepared after sea trials.

HYDRODYNAMIC ANALYZES

Onboard comfort and seakeeping performance is crucial for a luxury yacht Owner. Therefore a detailed hydrodynamic research plays a vital role in meeting the expectations. ARKYACHT’s naval architects use computer-aided prediction and analyze methods to optimize the hull form with regard to seakeeping performance.

STRUCTURAL ANALYZES

ARKYACHT’s naval architects use state-of-the-art Finite Element Analyzes -for global vessel or specific areas like mast foundation- to check the strength of the construction in various loading conditions.
