LeadingEDGE: Full Scale Ship Design Simulation on a Lloyd's Register Benchmark Test Case

LeadingEDGE: Full Scale Ship Design Simulation on a Lloyd's Register Benchmark Test Case

CFD accurateness was clearly proven at the Lloyd's Register benchmark test case aimed at accelerating the design process of ships and providing time- and cost-efficient alternatives to model testing.

A2V: Modeling aerodynamic lift for workboats and commercial passenger vessels in FINE™/Marine

A2V: Modeling aerodynamic lift for workboats and commercial passenger vessels in 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.

Structured meshing configurations with bulbs using OMNIS™/AutoGrid

Structured meshing configurations with bulbs using OMNIS™/AutoGrid

Meshing is always a compromise between computational efficiency and the needed accuracy. We need the smallest possible mesh to capture the effects that we consider as the most important inf our simulations.

Marintek chooses FINE™/Marine for planing hull resistance curve prediction

Marintek chooses FINE™/Marine for planing hull resistance curve prediction

For the prediction of the resistance curve of a planing hull and validation against model tests, Marintek used FINE™/Marine and OMNIS™/Hexpress in this user case. Read all about it here.

Verification and validation of resistance and propulsion computation

Verification and validation of resistance and propulsion computation

This paper is devoted to the verification and validation exercises with the FINE™/Marine software conducted for the Tokyo 2015 workshop.
