Thanks for looking into our challenge! STENA is always looking for ways to be more environmentally conscious, and one way to do that is to reduce emissions.
The challenge here is to be more sustainable by designing a ship’s hull form to be less resistant in the water, and thus reducing our consumption of energy and reducing our emissions to the atmosphere.
The goal of this challenge is to design a hull form with 16,000 tons of displacement.
What would be the hull design with the least resistance through the water?
1. Resistance through water
2. Novelty of design
3. Quality of calculations
SUBMISSION FILE FORMATS
Speed - Resistance calculations & results
Hull surface roughness assumption
Design speed 20 knots
6.5 meter draft (harbour restrictions)
Length over beam ration less than 8 (L / B < 8)
Bare hull only - to be considered
No propulsor/propeller to be included
Surface ship (not submarine)
16,000 tons of displacement
