The Architecture of Software Ship Power V1.0

Use of software has spread more and more in all application areas, becoming more and more relevant and critical for the development of design process of engineering product. Also in new design of ships the use of software is an important element for the development of the project with quality and on time. Prediction of power and resistance of the ship is one of the most important components of ship design process. The purpose of this paper is to present the architecture of the computer program, Ship Power V1.0, for the prediction of resistance and power of the ship. The software predicts resistance and power, as well as the resistance coefficient and power propulsion factor. The software is written in Visual basic, taking in consideration the requirement of quality of ISO 9126. The current version of software configuration is based on MARIN regression analysis models, but it is, also, conceptualized to include easily other regression analysis models, to further enhance its range of application. The program gives a detailed report and graphical representation of effective resistances and power versus speed. Ship Power can be used, with satisfactory results, during the early stage of ship design process for a rapid prediction of resistance and power, or to carry out the optimization of principal dimensions, in order to find the best solution.
