Design optimization of a multi-stage centrifugal compressor

Entechmach optimizes the design of a compressor to improve its performance realizing 6.5% reduction in power consumption of the compressor.

Pipistrel reduces by 6% the energy consumption of an electrical aircraft by optimizing its propeller with FINE™/Turbo

In the race to more environmentally friendly electrical aircrafts, Pipistrel designs a propeller specially adapted for exploiting in-flight power recuperation using CFD optimization.

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.

Multi-Disciplinary Optimization of a FORD Turbocharger Compressor Design

Numeca’s FINE™/Design3D offers the right solution for the multi-disciplinary optimization of a FORD turbocharger compressor design.

OPRA Turbines: Gas dispersion analysis and explosion protection of a gas turbine package

"A good mesh is one of the fundamentals to run the CFD analysis successfully. NUMECA's AutoMesh™ significantly reduced our meshing time and improved the mesh quality resulting in better CFD simulations."  OPRA Turbines International BV
