DELFTship forum Hull modeling Appendages in resistance calcs Re: Appendages in resistance calcs


Hi fellers,
If you look in the manual 15.9 it gives you a general idea. Now Im quoting directly from the manual, there are 2 methods used to calculate resistance, One is the Delft Series which is for fin keeled yachts and the other is the Kaper method which is for canoes. The data is taken directly from your model so there is no need to fiddle with it, although there is a limited ability to manually input data of your own choice. If you want to test different hulls etc just compare the results in the graph.
Marven also states……
This resistance module has been completely rewritten in preparation of the addition of more resistance prediction algorithms that will be added with the next release.
I dont know whats been added to the new version.
