High Performance Computing Modernization Program

Ship design tools: Shock/damage, hydrodynamics and early-stage design, and operational testing & transition.

  • Rapid Ship Design Environment (RSDE): Rapid development, optimization, assessment and integration of ship designs. Three partners: CREATE, NAVSEA and ONR.
  • Navy Enhanced Sierra Mechanics (NESM): Performance prediction of shock and damage effects, and reduced need for tests to assess ship shock and damage effects.
  • NavyFoam: Accurate, detailed calculations to accelerate and improve all stages of ship hydrodynamic design (seaway loads, sea-keeping, resistance, powering, etc.)
  • Integrated Hydrodynamics Design Environment (IHDE): User interface to facilitate use of the Navy LEAPS product model database and the suite of Navy hydrodynamic design tools.
