Lowering fuel consumption through Robust Design Optimization (RDO) of ship propellers

Lowering fuel consumption through Robust Design Optimization (RDO) of ship propellers

Optimizing the design of ship propellers is of key importance for the marine industry, as it has a direct impact on operational costs through its influence on fuel consumption and ship performance. Even the smallest improvement in the design of the propellers can save ship operators millions of dollars across an entire fleet.

Extending quadcopter drone flight time and range with OMNIS™ CFD simulation

Extending quadcopter drone flight time and range with OMNIS™ CFD simulation

This case study demonstrates the aerodynamic simulation and optimization of an industrial quadcopter drone (UAV) in hover mode, the most energy intensive mode of this type of drone.

Combining structured and unstructured meshes: the Holy Grail for CFD engineers

Combining structured and unstructured meshes: the Holy Grail for CFD engineers

Flow solvers must be able to read the type of meshes behind them, and as most flow solvers only accept either structured or unstructured meshes, this is can be a no-win situation. However, within NUMECA's OMNIS™ environment, users can switch between meshing approaches in a single click.
