Seminar on Very Fast and Reliable Ship Design using 1D to 3D Software Systems in Newport RI

Aerospace & Defense     10.05.2017

Hands-on seminar about our simulation software for marine design organised in collaboration with SYRF and NMMA

See and learn how you can significantly cut costs and save time in ship design thanks to our unique, state-of-the-art FINE™/Marine software. Get a chance to listen to industry leaders on how they take advantage of FINE™/Marine in their design process, with speakers like Len Imas from Oracle Team USA and Donald MacPherson, Technical Director of HydroComp Inc. They will address their design process from preliminary to detailed design, both for hull form and propulsion using 1D and 2D tools, examples of the coupling of propeller and hull 3D CFD simulations in FINE/Marine plus an overview of their ship optimization.

An overview of FINE™/Marine capabilities and benefits for simulation in naval architecture will be presented by Benoit Mallol, product manager of the marine group at Numeca International. We will show you how the latest advancements in CFD make this technology highly accessible for any company in need of cost- and time-efficient design solutions. 

Moreover you will attend live demonstrations with FINE™/Marine and have the possibility to experience automated simulations during hands-on exercises.

Key benefits:

  • Get hands-on FINE™/Marine experience (please bring your laptop)
  • Learn from and discuss with expert speakers
  • Run CFD simulations on the Cloud and get high-accuracy results in minimum time thanks to FINE™/Marine (powered by UberCloud and CPU 24|7)
