The paper describes progress in software and business solutions for advanced CFD applications. Adaptive grid algorithms are shown to be mature for industry applications, refining and coarsening grids in unsteady flow problems, e.g. for capturing free surfaces around ships, cavitation at propellers, etc. The “NUMECA on Demand” business model allows occasional users renting high-performance computing hardware along with parallel CFD licenses to compute resource-intensive applications. Examples from marine applications and related industries serve as illustrations.
