PPG announced results from a study that concluded vessels using its fouling release and antifouling coatings show improved speed and power performance.
A naval architect has to consider several aspects while planning a ship’s hull form during the designing and construction process. Learn about the basics of choosing the right hull form of a ship in the article inside.
The design of a ship hull is based on the specific geometric definition of a hull which influences the hydrostatics, general arrangement, strength and aesthetics of the vessel. Learn about some common methods used to design ship’s hull.
When it comes to increasing ship’s efficiency, improving the hull efficiency is one of the most debated topic. Lately a lot of research has been put in developing ways to reduce the effects of friction on the ship’s hull.
X bow is a type of hull design which improves ship’s efficiency and stability at high seas. Find out the difference between X bow hull design and conventional hull design of ships.
Find out how the hull of a ship is designed for various factors taken into consideration during the entire lifetime of the ship, and how the design of a ship’s hull plays the most important role in the entire ship design and shipbuilding project.
Researchers at the Swedish Gothenburg University have found molecules created by certain type of bacteria to prevent barnacles from clinging on the ship’s hull surface.
PPG, a global leader in protective and marine coatings, and DNV GL have signed a collaboration agreement focused on operational data analysis using DNV GL’s next-generation hull analysis methodologies.
DNV GL has launched a new JDP in cooperation with marine insurers Swedish Club, Norwegian Hull Club, Gard & Skuld to test the potential influence of EALs on failures in stern tube bearings.
