Marine and nautical
Marine industry is driven by the needs for reduced manufacturing and operating costs, shorter product development cycles and design improvements.
Such exigent scenarios pave way for innovative product engineering.
CFD analysis can optimize ship hull design, sail shape and propeller blades. Analysis predicts water free surface around the ship hull which helps to accomplish optimal hull shape with low hydrodynamic drag.
RBF Morph allows to explore the entire set of solutions compatible with the design constraints, considering original solutions, and thus arriving at the optimal design without the need of expensive experimental tests.
- Hull form optimization
- Propeller design
- Appendages and energy saving devices
- Design and placement of thrusters
- Sailing yachts
