Concept design, research and development of multihulled ships.
- More than 30 new concept designs, including:
- concept designing of a new type of super-fast ship (speed twice that of then-typical fast vessel, at improved seaworthiness at all speeds - ferries, patrol and battle ships, displacements 20-1000 t, speeds 80-130 kn);
- concept designing of a new SWATH hull form for all-weather fast ferries, motor yachts, patrol and battle ships, aircraft and helicopter carriers and the like, displacements 15-3,500-60,000 t, speeds 30-70 kn in Sea State 3-6;
- economical SWATH-platforms for new types of vessels, like transatlantic and feeder container-carriers with up to 40 kn speed;
- all-weather passenger ships for remote coastal operation and luxury passenger cruise ships;
- small economical shallow-draft fishing and river transport vessels, tugs with tractor motors, ship-platform with snake propulsor, etc.
- Heading complex scientific and designing programs (including collaboration with design offices).
- Development of design software for multi-hull vessels (both conventional and SWATH).
- Development of and testing the world first systematic model series of catamarans, trimarans, twin- and triple-hulled SWA ships, and ships with outriggers, including collection and analysis of full-scale data and propulsion data.
- Prototype tests in waves, development of complex seaworthiness comparison method. Systematic calculations of plate thickness and hull weight for SWATH and catamarans.
