BYD Group founders Sebastia Simó and Raúl Gonzalo have coursed their studies at the renowned University of Southampton and graduated as Naval Architects and Engineers. This provides BYD Group plenty of strength to deal with most of the naval architecture and engineering aspects that a boat or a yacht might require, to perform at its best. The services that BYD Group can provide and develop are as follows:
- HULL DESIGN
BYD Group can develop any kind of hull shape type, power, or sail, for any desired purpose, pleasure, competition or work, approaching the design from pure naval architecture bases, to obtain the expected performance in a balanced yacht.
- VPP, CFD, hulls and sail plans optimizations
BYD Group offers the possibility to optimize hulls, appendages, sail plans and overall performance for any kind of yacht and sailing program, using leading CFD, VPP and power prediction methods and software.
- STABILITY CALCULATIONS
HIDROSTATICS, INTACT OR DAMAGED STABILITY
BYD Group pays lots of attention to this important chapter from the early stages of a project and offers from simple hydrostatic calculations to large angle transversal intact or damaged stabilities for the different loading conditions or rules requirements.
BYD Group offers accurate weight calculations to guarantee the reliability of the estimated calculatoins derived from it.
- LIGHTSHIP SURVEY
We offer the service for lightship Surveys for any classified yacht, under MCA, Lloyd’s Register, BV (Bureau Veritas), ABS (American Buerau of Shipping), DNV, in Palma and Barcelona or we can send any of our Naval Architects to the port where your yacht is
- STRUCTURE CALCULATIONS
Direct calculation and FEA.
RULES & REGULATIONS (BV, LLOYDS, RINA, DNV…)
BYD Group provides structural calculation based on most of the common rules used today for the different construction materials.
CE ISO standards
For European pleasure boats up to 24m BYD Group offers structual calculations based on the CE applicable ISO standard.
SPECIAL STRUCTURAL PROJECTS
For some special projects, normally hi tech composites that require specific advanced structural scantling calculations, BYD Group collaborates with the leading companies available in the world, to be able to offer the most optimized structure possible.
DIRECT CALCULATION & FEA
BYD Group also offers direct engineering calculation and FEA with CATIA V5, with the objective to design the most resistant and safe solutions in each case, while maintaining a control of the weights.
- RULES & REGULATIONS
BUREAU VERITAS, LLOYDS, RINA, DNV…
BYD Group usually works with the most common rules and regulations required in the yacht industry.
CE ISO standards
For those projects where required compliance with european directive, BYD Group uses a sophisticated software “CE pro” during the design process to ensure no-occurrence of surprises during the construction, while providing complete and detailed “technical files” for approval and owner’s manuals if required.
