Abstract

A numerical method for predicting the perfonnance of foil-assisted catamarans will be described in the paper and the results compared with experimental data. The method developed is extremely flexible, in that it is able to account for any configuration of foils and hull shape. This will allow a wide range of parameters to be tested in the preliminary design of a foil-assisted catamaran.
