1 © Copyright QinetiQ Limited Introduction to Paramarine: Hull Generation Advanced Hullform Generation within Paramarine

2 © Copyright QinetiQ Limited 2009 Hull Generator Paramarine is a design system for ships and submarines which provides the Naval Architect with many tools for initial design and through-life support. A hullform definition system based on multiple surface patches has far greater capacity to model the complicated shapes of modern hullforms. Paramarine has an embedded solid modeller which can sew together a number of surface patches to form a solid hullform. Paramarine now has a native hullform definition system for shaping a multi-patch hull. This presentation describes the development of an innovative surface design tool known as Hull Generator to provide this multi-patch hullform system.
