Planing Hull

Planing Hull:

Boats designed with planing hulls will rise up and glide on top of water when they speed up. Simerics-MP+ can be used to predict the performance of planing hull including acceleration, and porpoising of the boat.


  • Automated meshing of the geometry
  • Superior speed enables transient simulations which are inherently more accurate
  • Can include complex features and tight clearances
  • Ease-of-use

Design Issues/Benefits:

  • Predict performance to within 5 %
  • Predict loads
  • Reduce noise
