Yacht Loads Reduction

Yacht Loads Reduction

Yacht design presents unique challenges compared to buildings due to the requirement to power all systems on diesel fuel. Energy systems are controlled by central systems. Rooms are expected to be comfortable at all times, while audible noise from HVAC systems is not desired and simultaneously materials weight and size is minimized.  This modeling study used Phase Change Materials to reduce thermal loads and improve occupant comfort.
