Frequently asked questions

How much of an impact can BAR Technologies Hull Optimisation have on fuel consumption & emissions?

In our recent collaboration with Deltamarin, our Hull Optimisation work culminated in a 11% improvement in ship efficiency. Based on our experience to date, we think that between 5 and 15% is generally achievable, depending on the existing efficiency of the vessel under consideration.

What changes can we expect to see to a typical ship hull, after it has been optimised?

Changes will be made to the geometry of the hull below the ship waterline. These changes typically adjust the flow on entry, near the bow, or into the propeller. The combination of these changes and their interactions is where the efficiency gains can be made.

What role does AI play in a BAR Technologies Hull Optimisation?

Generative Design techniques are used to automate the creation of candidate geometries which are unconstrained by human bias. When combined with machine learning (from a CDF training tool), we can rapidly investigate 10000's of solutions and optimise using multi-objective methodologies.
