SARC BV, which is an acronym for Scheepsbouwkundig Advies en Reken Centrum (Naval Architectural Software and Engineering Centre), was founded in 1980, when the computer age was still in its early days. Herbert Koelman, founder and managing director of SARC, was among the first to recognise the potential of computer applications in the field of naval architectural calculations. Starting with simple programs for tables of hydrostatic data, tank sounding tables and hydrostatic stability calculations, SARC has ever since been developing new software, investigating and implementing new techniques.
Today SARC employs trained and experienced naval architects, involved in software engineering, software support, project management and project support. In order to offer their clients state-of-the-art solutions, SARC is continuously investing in research and development, which is reflected by quite some contributions in refereed journals and conference papers.
