Design & Operation of Trimaran Ships


The idea of trimaran ships has inspired a tremendous amount of attention, both civil and military. The concept; a stabilised monohull, with small sidehulls adding stability to a slender central hull, has a number of potential advantages. The most obvious are the increased control over stability and greater flexibility in layout, but other advantages include better seakeeping, reduced speed loss in a seaway and possible high speed powering and vulnerability benefits.

The subject has now been thoroughly investigated around the world with a combination of design studies, numerical simulation, model testing and the construction of the large ocean-going technology demonstrator, RV Triton. The trials have proven highly successful and have produced a large amount of data; validating prediction methods and design tools and providing experience of operating a seagoing vessel in all weather conditions.

There is now an increasing move to exploit this new technology, culminating in the recent order of a large trimaran fast ferry to operate in the Canary Islands.

This conference, to be held at Victoria Park Plaza (London, UK) will definitively review the present situation with a selection of papers from civil and defence sources, as well as providing a forum to discuss plans for the future. This conference is planned with the UK MoD to include very significant discussion of the results of the Triton trials programme.
