Ultra-fast and fuel efficient aerodynamic boat design by A2V with 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.

OPRA Turbines: Gas dispersion analysis and explosion protection of a gas turbine package

OPRA Turbines manufactures generator sets using the OP16 series of gas turbines. This customer case describes the development of a marine version of its OP16 gen-set for use onboard ships.

Validation of Wind Loads on a Slender Vessel using CFD

DAMEN and NUMECA are developing a CFD methodology to demonstrate a vessel has sufficient transversal stability to resist over-rolling in severe side winds.

The AeroGust Project: Aeroelastic Gust Modelling

The importance of accurately calculating the way an aircraft reacts to gusts and turbulences early on in the design process.
