Innovation & Quality

Classroom training: FINE™/Marine

Who should attend

New NUMECA users, engineers, designers.



FINE™/Marine, the leading CFD software for naval architects and marine engineers, offers high accuracy flow simulation results on arbitrary and complex geometries, leading to shorter design cycles.


What you will learn

In the introductory training:

  • All the fundamentals to start with the interface for the first time
  • The essential elements to perform resistance applications from the CAD import to the analysis of the results

 In the advanced training:

  • Automation tools
  • Interesting methods for dynamic mesh refinements and interpolation techniques
  • User-defined programs for advanced simulation
  • Particular propulsion and seekeeping setups


Next training
