Abstract

The hydrodynamics performances prediction of the small ships represents an important issue in the initial design stage. The Preliminary Hydrodynamics Performances (PHP) software platform was developed at the Research Centre of the Naval Architecture Faculty from “Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati, in order to calculate the ship resistance, as well as the powering and manoeuvring performances of the small ships. The description of the most important software modules and corresponding theoretical aspects is presented in this paper. The software platform is used for the didactic applications and research activities dedicated to the estimation of the hydrodynamics performances of the small ships, in the preliminary design stage.
