09 May 2017 | Maritime | PRESS RELEASEA twist in the tail: DNV GL adds asymmetric stern to ECO Lines hull optimization serviceA vessel with an asymmetric stern has a twisted aft shape that is designed to account for the differing flow conditions on each side of the propeller. The idea emerged in the 1960s, but due to the difficulty of manually developing the optimal shape, this design failed to make a large impact at the time. DNV GL has revisited the idea and, using high-fidelity computer fluid dynamics (CFD) in combination with parametric formal optimization, the classification society can now offer ship owners the option of incorporating an asymmetric stern into their new vessels.

The PSC Planner has been designed to help ship owners, managers and operators increase their operational efficiency by giving them an overview of a vessel’s or fleet’s PSC performance and to benchmark that performance against the IACS classed world fleet. It also helps the crew on board by showing them particular areas to focus on when they are preparing for their next inspection.
