Abstract

Surface Effect Ships (SES) are widely considered as the new water tiansportation system of the future. SES are catamarans (ships with slim thin hulls). By applying overpressure in the area between the hulls the ship is lifted (air cushion) and thus the hydrodynamic resistance is decreased significantly resulting in enhanced cruising speed. SES designed today are either produced with composites based on glassfibres and thus limited in length (30–40m) or in aluminium structures, like the Stena HSS, not capable to reach reasonable weight reductions.
