INC. ANNOUNCES NAVCAD ver. 3.8
Inc., of Durham, NH USA, is pleased to announce the release
of NavCad v3.8. NavCad is a naval architect's tool offering
an integrated platform to predict resistance and power, and
to determine optimum propeller parameters. The focus of this
effort has been to improve user effectiveness-promoting accuracy
and confidence in the results.
The most significant
new feature is for the prediction of Ct-based resistance. In previous
versions, prediction methods were spread out over Displacement,
Semi-displacement and Sailing yacht hull forms. Periodically, a
hull will cross these definitions, requiring frequent back-and-forth
changing of hull types. All resistance prediction methods for these
hull types are now merged into a single Build process in v3.8.
Likewise, hull data entry has
been merged into a single screen for all hulls. All hull data for
Displacement, Semi-displacement, Planing, Sailing yacht and Catamaran
hulls are now entered on the same page. Data entry can also now
be made via non-dimensional parameters (e.g., L/B, B/T).
