WHOLE SHIP MODELLING SAVES FUEL

Whole Ship Model (WSM) a software package that will simulate the dynamic response of a ship in a sea passage, is described. It consists of many interacting components, each responsible for simulating the behavior of a part of the ship system--for example, the hull. WSM can be used by shipping companies to determine whether new equipment will pay for itself and by shipmasters to help select economical cruising speeds.
