With the latest state-of-art technology we provide CFD analyses already at an early stage oft he design draft. The services are integrated in the design loop, so we consider:
  • Several different independently moving geometries (hull, propeller and rudder)
  • Even big differences in reference length (e.g length of hull vs. rudder) in the same run.
Complex physics
  • Free surface with waves
  • Floating construction
  • Cavitation
In detail we look at:
  • Calculation of drag
  • Systematic optimisation to reduce drag force
  • Required installed propulsion power
  • Torques and  forces at the propeller
  • Cavitation prediction
  • Efficiencies
  • Interactions between the fuselage / propeller / rudder
  • Simulation of manoeuvres
