This paper describes the capabilities of a computer program which facilitates and integrates the hydrofoil ship preliminary design cycle. The Hydrofoil Analysis and Design (HANDE) program was designed and developed to provide design teams with a fast, consistent, and easily used new tool for designing hydrofoil ships which meet desired mission requirements. To accommodate a wide range of preliminary design studies, this program allows three levels of detail of analysis to be computed. The first consists of parametric and empirical sizing methods which produce high level results. The second level consists of detailed iterative calculations through a series of technology modules. The result of this iterative process is a converged, technically consistent ship design. The third level provides a more detailed analysis of this converged design. A data bank of ship information facilitates program use and guarantees data consistency.
