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.

Several leaps forward for CFD simulations of hydrofoils

NUMECA discussed with Xavier Guisnel from VPLP Design the idea of revising the hydrofoil simulation standards. Result: the quasi-static approach, dedicated to hydrofoil, was born. 

#AcademicWednesday - FINE™/Acoustics for measuring the noise of exhaust mufflers

Vengat Subraminiam, a master student from the Anna University in India, uses FINE™/Acoustics and HEXPRESS™/Hybrid to contribute towards reducing vehicle noise polution.
