Innovation in marine design: CFD specialist technology, a vital tool for success
April 8, 2021
LIVE WEBINAR | 08 APRIL 2021 | TWO SESSIONS AVAILABLE
Cape Horn Engineering optimize designs for cutting edge vessels using full-scale CFD technology
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.
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 analysis are used for performance predictions and design optimization to increase speed, improve fuel consumption, ensure safety and comfort, and reduce emissions.
In this webinar you will learn:
- How Cape Horn Engineering use Simcenter STAR-CCM+ for advanced aerodynamic and hydrodynamic analysis
- How CFD simulations of propulsion, seakeeping and manoeuvring studies can improve performance for maritime vessels
- How CFD is used in the design optimisation of Wind Assisted Ship Propulsion and Floating Offshore Wind structures
- Why CFD simulations are replacing traditional physical testing for most applications
