Company Profile:
Van Oossanen Naval Architects are independent naval architects and hydrodynamicists with a vast experience in the design of yachts and commercial ships. Our particular area of expertise is the field of ship hydrodynamics.
While many projects consist of independent design work, many other projects are commissioned by other designers and naval architects, requiring our expertise in the aero- and hydrodynamic performance areas and capabilities in Computational Fluid Dynamics.
Our mission is to design yachts and ships which excel in performance. We are proud that our designs are among the most fuel-efficient, low resistance and comfortable vessels designed and built today. We are not afraid to innovate and go off the beaten track as long as the associated improvements outweigh any risk involved for the client.
As a company we aim to excel in performance in terms of providing flexible, reliable, and customer-oriented solutions.
We are located in Wageningen, The Netherlands.

What we offer:
The Hull Vane consists of a foil positioned below the hull of a ship or yacht. The Hull Vane is capable of lowering the resistance on both existing and new build ship by 10 to 20 percent.
The Fast Displacement Hull Form is applicable to all vessels and out-performs conventional displacement and semi-displacement type hull forms at all speeds up to full “planing” speeds. At semi-displacement speeds, the resistance values displayed by the FDHF are 15 to 20% better than those of well-designed hard chine hull forms.
Using Computational Fluid Dynamics, we are capable of computing the flow fields around ships and analyse them in greater detail than was ever before. CFD offers a tool towards a greater understanding of flow phenomena, such as pressure drag, thrust deduction and wake flow.

What we are looking for:
We are looking for customers who are interested in:

1. Analysing the performance of both new designs and existing ships by means of CFD.
2. Lower the fuel consumption of ships by applying a Hull Vane.
3. Optimizing the sailing trim in order to reduce the fuel consumption.
4. Optimization of new designs by means of CFD.
5. Optimization of particular details such as the bulb or the gondola.
6. Determination and optimization of the wake field.
7. Sea-keeping calculations using CFD.

Keywords:
  • Ships (including repairs and refits)
  • Propulsion system components (e.g. gearings, propellers, couplings)
  • Marine Research


Collaboration sought:
  • Research, Technological alliance

What we offer:
Despite our heavy involvement in yacht design projects we have always maintained a wide horizon in our naval architecture work by also working on commercial & military crafts. It has been our capabilities in the Computational Fluid Dynamics field that has attracted attention from designers and builders of such commercial vessels.

CFD enables us to accurately evaluate the resistance and propulsion properties of hull forms and the flow around complex hull appendages. Numerous projects are carried out annually requiring the numerical modeling of a particular design and evaluating possible improvements to the design of hull and appendages. This not only includes changes to the bow and the bulb (when fitted) but also to the aft-body, often in association with a complex set of appendages.
