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
  • Appendages
  • Fouling
  • 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.
