Applying Composite Materials

patrol boat innovations 

Damen has extensive experience in the use of composite materials, in situations ranging from tough applications for the offshore industry to high tech Interceptors for navies, coastguards and police forces.

Computational Fluid Dynamics

damen naval innovations 

A study was carried out to evaluate the influence of different ship components on the airflow around a ship's superstructure. By means of CFD simulations and validation by wind tunnel experiments, working conditions were determined at different wind speeds and sailing speeds, combined with different wind angles and ship headings.

By using Finite Element Analysis, the actual behaviour of a ship’s structure can be simulated. Undesired effects can be found and corrected.



All Damen vessels benefit from knowledge gathered during ongoing research programmes within the Group. Damen works alongside world-renowned research institutes such as Delft University of Technology, Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN) and the Netherlands Organization of Applied Scientific Research (TNO), as well as other reputable universities and leading maritime companies.
