Hydrodynamic testing solutions from Kistler are deployed worldwide to make ships safer and more efficient. As well as optimizing overall ship integrity, our technologies improve the vessel's propulsion systems. Kistler's portfolio for maritime and naval applications also includes best-in-class solutions for offshore structures such as wind turbines, oil and gas facilities, and bridges.
Hydrodynamic testing solutions from Kistler are based on the strengths of piezoelectric sensors. Developers and engineers use these systems for the complete range of hydrodynamic tests: examples include sloshing, towing, ditching and modal testing. As regards propulsion, we offer efficient solutions to counteract cavitation as well as propeller-induced noise and vibration. Quieting and silencing have also become critically important in response to growing concerns about environmental issues. Furthermore, testing of hydrodynamic wave impacts (known as “slamming”) is a crucial factor to ensure the integrity and safety of offshore structures. So be on the safe side – and opt for maritime and naval solutions from Kistler!
