Emirates Team New Zealand and NUMECA have a yacht to talk about!
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.
DAMEN and NUMECA are developing a CFD methodology to demonstrate a vessel has sufficient transversal stability to resist over-rolling in severe side winds.
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 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.
