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.

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. 

Morrelli & Melvin: Making Waves in the Marine Industry with Numeca

Numeca USA customer Morrelli & Melvin has been busy using FINE™/Marine for various CFD design optimization projects in the marine industry for the past two and a half years.

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.
