Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has now, after some 25 years of development, reached maturity. We are capable of computing the hydrodynamic and aerodynamic flow fields around ships and yachts, both in calm water and in waves, and analyze them in much greater detail than was ever before possible.
The evolution of CFD provides greater understanding of flow phenomena such as pressure drag, thrust deduction, wake flow and added resistance in waves, to name but a few aspects that can be addressed in great detail.
For commercial vessels we offer the broad spectrum of optimization tools that analyze the flow around your hull or appendages. Answering all your questions on resistance and propulsion, hull improvement and optimization, wave reduction and sailing comfort, and the effects of hull shape on manoeuvring. Our expertise:
