is a software for designing the hull of the sailing boat, esspecially
fast sailing boats.
KUS-SHDM should be comprehended as developmental tool for designing
the sailing boat hull. At heart the shape of the hull is suggested depending
on input data defined by a hull designer.
The main superiority of KUS-SHDM is the SWL method generating a such hull
that has the symmetrical water lines in conditions of different
heel angles, as it is up-wind sailing. This is one of the basic hypothesis
of the reduced bare-hull resistance.
KUS-SHDM, besides the hull synthezis, contributes the hull
analyzis. That means it is possibly to get the results of
stability and hydrostatics calculation. Stability
can be estimated for every angle of any inclinations. In
this way precisely analysis of stability can be done.This
means that different simulations with alternations of the
weights and its centorids can be obtained.
At the moment KUS-SHDM is not occupied with appendage, as
the keel, the rudder or the rigg with sails.
The KUS-SHDM application is recommended for the yacht designers
who want to experiment with distinctive application input
data to get a fast sailing hull.
This software has to be understood and used as one of the development software
tools for designing a specific form of sailing yacht hulls.
