Van Oossanen Naval Architects are independent naval architects and hydrodynamicists with a vast experience in the design of sail and motor yachts, commercial ships and advanced marine vehicles. Our particular area of expertise is the field of ship hydrodynamics and performance.
Our involvement in projects varies from a total responsibility, from conceptual design to the engineering and building supervision, to being part of a design team in which we typically provide the design of the hull and the appendages.
While many projects consist of independent design work, carried out for owners and builders directly, many other projects are commissioned by other designers and naval architects, requiring our particular expertise in the aero- and hydrodynamic performance areas and capabilities in Computational Fluid Dynamics.
“In this video, the calculations in Computational Fluid Dynamic of the De Hoop 50 meter Fast Supply Intervention Vessel (FSIV) is visualized. On the left, the vessel is displayed without Hull Vane®. On the right, a Hull Vane® is included. In the middle, respectively the heave, pitch, acceleration at 0.9 LWL, and the resistance is [...]
