Democratizing Fluid Dynamics for marine engineering: Maneuvering

    Anne-Marie Schelkens     Webinar Recording     02.10.2019



Accessibility and effectiveness of CFD and HPC systems for marine design engineers is increasing exponentially. Progress in CFD innovation has yielded high fidelity tools for full and model scale simulations, which are now commonly replacing sea trials and model basin testing.This has dramatic implications on design cycle times, engineering costs, and even final product performance. 

If you’re thinking these “heavy simulations” might be constrained by your current cluster and computing resources, flexible HPC clouds have proven to be an effective solution at a fraction of the cost. This new wave of scalable cloud solutions has granted thousands of marine engineers and naval architects access to industry-leading CFD. 


During this webinar a group of leading CFD specialists from NUMECA will share examples of maneuvering simulations with FINE™/Marine that modern marine design teams have used to gain a competitive edge.

We will cover the following topics:


  1. Best practices & methodology for quicker setup for maneuvering simulations

    • Zig-zag, turning circles, and course-keeping

  2. How to achieve precise results for Model & Full-scale testing to replace sea trials and basin testing 

  3. Leveraging the cloud and flexible licensing to run simulations at scale and at a fraction of the cost
