In one of our recent projects a colleague created a fantastic surface model of a twin skeg ship hull. As a special request, the customer wanted to vary the twin skeg in order to conduct studies. After putting together some rough ideas, he created this great model step by step in just a couple of days in CAESES®. Here is a total view of the hull:
Typically, one would model only half the vessel in a symmetric case. The following picture shows this part at the end of the vessel (aft body):
The following animation shows a variation of 2 parameters:
- Y-position of the shaft
- Angle of the skeg
Yes, you are right, only 2 parameters! This is really the fun part of CAESES®!
Sure, the geometry model contains similar parameters for additional control of the hull characteristics.
