FastShip Publisher's description
FastShip is an easy-to-use, yet powerful program for designing hulls
FastShip is an easy-to-use, yet powerful program for designing hulls, superstructures, appendages, and other marine structures, with the ability to design fair surfaces quickly and accurately. FastShip's flexibility allows any hullform type to be represented, and hull features such as bossings, bulbous bows, twin skegs, chines/knuckles, broken sheerlines, and circular bilge turns are readily incorporated into the model.
What's New in This Release:В· Hydrostatics Defaults changed to correspond more with US definitions and standards.
В· Hydrostatics output labels changed to agree with ATTC definitions; this will mostly be transparent to users, other than "CPL" for CP, since the ATTC definitions agree largely with those commonly used in the US.
В· Hydrostatics calculations corrected to provide better values for metacentric height; previous versions assumed if a center of gravity was not provided that metacentric height was to be calculated from the waterline. The new version uses KM (from the keel at the station of maximum area).
В· Hydrostatics calculations modified to refer to the station of maximum area.
В· Algorithms to create a PMF file for a user hull are included. These algorithms have very limited capability and generally only provide the beginnings of a PMF file. They will be effective on a hull that is one surface, with the waterline at the Z=0 level, that already has the topology of a parallel middle body with the 5 relevant columns...
