Axe bow concept

The design philosophy behind is brought even further by the introduction of a new axe bow concept. Here the minimization of the nonlinear hydrodynamic lift in the fore body of the ship as well as a further reduction of the nonlinear wave exciting forces is further achieved by taking the modifications more to the extreme.
The amount of increment of draft forward and the increase in sheer as well as the amount of volume and its vertical distribution in the bow sections (needed to optimize the behavior in waves) is determined using an iterative nonlinear motion calculation.
