FINE™/Marine and C-Wizard: Easy-to-use and efficient CFD tools for naval architecture

    Benoit Mallol     Webinar Recording     08.07.2020



In this webinar receive insights on how to reduce engineering time and gain efficiency for your designs with FINE™/Marine and the C-Wizard.

We will show you that high-fidelity results are accessible to everybody, CFD expert or not, and can complement or even replace model testing or sea trials.

FINE™/Marine enables engineers to test more design variations and get more detailed information of the fluid field.



In a live case study we will illustrate several examples of industrial applications for fully automatic simulations with the C-Wizard (mesh and set-up) for following applications:  

  • Resistance
  • Seakeeping
  • Open water propeller
  • Trim optimisation

See for example, how to set up for self-propulsion simulation in less than 5 minutes:

  • Input: enter geometry (Rhinoceros plugin included!) and navigation conditions
  • Output: resistance, vessel position, propeller rotational speed and 3D fluid field

Furthermore, we will preview on-going enhancements for the C-Wizard, benefiting from the effective adaptive grid refinement and overset grid techniques!
