85m Motor Yacht

With the use of CFD we have modelled the air flow around the superstructure of an 85m motor yacht.

Our client was interested in the flow velocities over the aft decks of the yacht. For this project 5 wind directions and 3 different velocities were analysed. In order to properly calculate the characteristics of the flow around the detailed and complex geometry a mesh with 20 million cells was needed. The exhaust flow of the engines coming from the mast was also modelled.
