  How We Use Maxsurf  |  Kasten Marine Design  

The Maxsurf suite of programs fall into three basic categories that follow our work-flow

Maxsurf Resistance

Maxsurf Resistance (previously called Hullspeed) directly opens a Maxsurf model, and lets you estimate the resistance and power requirements for any Maxsurf design.  A range of industry standard resistance prediction algorithms are included, allowing selection of the appropriate methods for the hull type being considered, whether power or sail. 

The wave spectrum can be calculated and rendered as shown above.  The results can be exported as tabular data, or plotted to a graph as below.

Other Resistance Analysis Modules

There are several other marine design modules available within the Maxsurf Range, each of which will directly open the native Maxsurf file for further analysis.  These programs include:
