Powering and Endurance
Integrated within the one program, the powering estimation uses common algorithms to calculate the effective power requirements of a design based on:
- Naked hull from Paramarine geometry
- Air resistance
- Shallow water effects
- Powerful propeller finder
- Both surfaced and submerged resistance can be calculated.
The endurance calculations allow surfaced or submerged mission profiles to be defined allowing investigation of the energy store levels throughout each mission.
