Project Monotricat®: Underwater shooting Monotricat hull in Towing Tank
Underwater shooting hull Monotricat in TOwing Tank of Trieste University – Department of Naval Engineering.
MONOTRICAT® is the first displacement naval hull navigating at speeds of planing hulls (*) on SPRAY SELF-PRODUCTS at high hydrodynamic efficiency and energy saving (*the resistance curve is a straight line).
MONOTRICAT® is an innovative architecture of naval hull high hydrodynamic efficiency and energy saving, patented in Italy and internationally, studied at the University of Trieste (Italy) – Dep. Naval Engineering, and at I.N.S.E.A.N. C.N.R. – Institute for Research in Engineering Naval and Maritime of the National Research Council – Institute of Towing Tank of Rome, and at the KTH Royal Insitute of Technology of Stockholm (Sweden), and optimized in C.F.D. at a italian research center connected with University of Genoa (Italy).
The video shows the presence of air / spray self produced under the Monotricat hull with the function of breaking the boundary layer thus reducing the viscous friction.
The video was filmed in Towing Tank of Department of Naval Engineering of Trieste University (courtesy of Prof. Igor Zotti).
