Innovation & Quality


Who should attend

New NUMECA users. Engineers, designers.



FINE™/Marine, the leading CFD software for naval architects and marine engineers, offers high accuracy flow simulation results on arbitrary and complex geometries, leading to shorter design cycles.


In the introductory training you will learn:

  • All the fundamentals to start with the interface for the first time
  • The essential elements to perform resistance applications from the CAD import to the analysis of the results


In the advanced training you will learn:

  • Automation tools
  • Interesting methods for dynamic mesh refinements and interpolation techniques
  • User-defined programs for advanced simulation
  • Particular propulsion and seekeeping setups


Topics covered

 Introductory training 

 Day 1


  • Project architecture
  • Meshing fundamentals
  • CAD import and domain creation
  • Meshing guidelines for marine applications
  • Practice: mesh generation for a fully appended hull
  • Hydrostatic calculations        

 Day 2


  • Guidelines for project setup
  • Practice: setup and launch a fully appended hull resistance calculation
  • Task management,and monitoring
  • C-Wizard: automated project setup for resistance computations
