Innovation in marine design: CFD technology for seakeeping success


Innovation in marine design

In today’s drive for efficiency and performance, relying on towing tank tests of physical, scaled ship models is no longer necessary. The shift toward using CFD technology brings many advantages over traditional methods, when analyzing performance predictions and optimizing the design of vessels. Individual forces and motions can be accurately analyzed since it models the vessel at full size, including all appendages.

Simulation technology for seakeeping analysis

In this webinar, Cape Horn Engineering presents how Siemens CFD technology is used at the forefront of new designs for yachts, commercial ships and renewable energy structures. Hear how they analyze aerodynamic and hydrodynamic performance and use automation to test multiple design configurations and run hundreds of simulations a day. Their CFD studies and seakeeping analysis are used for performance predictions and design optimization to increase speed, improve fuel consumption, ensure safety and comfort, and reduce emissions.
