Ultra-fast and fuel efficient aerodynamic boat design by A2V with FINE™/Marine

Computational Fluids Dynamics (CFD) is the core of the design approach of this vessel. With NUMECA’s software FINE™/Marine, A2V relied entirely on simulation during the design of the fully instrumented 10.5m prototype.

Validation of Wind Loads on a Slender Vessel using CFD by DAMEN & NUMECA

DAMEN and NUMECA are developing a CFD methodology to demonstrate a vessel has sufficient transversal stability to resist over-rolling in severe side winds.

Marintek chooses FINE™/Marine for planing hull resistance curve prediction

For the prediction of the resistance curve of a planing hull and validation against model tests, Marintek used FINE™/Marine and HEXPRESS™ in this user case. Read all about it here.

Meshing configurations with bulbs using AutoGrid5™

Meshing is always a compromise between computational efficiency and the needed accuracy. We need the smallest possible mesh to capture the effects that we consider as the most important in our simulations.

Numerical Simulations of the Cavitating and Non-Cavitating Flow around the Postdam Propeller Test Case

Numerically simulated cavitating performance and open water performance of an SMP'15 propeller

Trends in CFD Illustrated Exemplarily for Competitive Sailing Yachts

This paper describes trends in CFD (computational fluid dynamics) techniques for simulation-based design and simulation-based operation.

KCS Resistance Calculation

Computation referring to the towing tank tests performed by MOERI on the KCS.

Business and Technical Adaptivity in Marine CFD Simulations Bridging the Gap

The paper describes progress in software and business solutions for advanced CFD applications.

Influence of the Turbulence Closures for the Wake Prediction of a Marine Propeller

Results of computational fluid dynamics validation for flow around a marine propeller are presented.
