Marine engineers and naval architects face increasing demands for fuel efficiency, speed, passenger comfort, and reducing environmental impact on our oceans and rivers. With ever shorter time-to-market and competitive pressure to reduce costs, CFD simulation offers unprecedented possibilities for obtaining optimal design solutions that tackle these challenges, increasing performance and stability, reducing drag, and lowering impact on marine life.
Constantly changing sea, transport, loading, and racing conditions impact the performance of your designs, which means hundreds or even thousands of simulation runs may be required to finalize a design and feel fully confident about the accuracy of its results. Automation is therefore crucial for minimizing turnaround speeds without compromising on the accuracy of the results. Our team of naval engineers have worked closely with our customers to create dedicated automation workflows. Our solutions have automation in place for resistance, seakeeping, (self-)propulsion, trim optimization, open water propellers, and many other facets of ship CFD analysis.

In this on-demand webinar, we will show you that high-fidelity results are accessible to everybody, CFD expert or not, and can complement or even replace model testing and sea trials.
In a live case study, we will illustrate several examples of industrial applications for fully automatic simulations with the C-Wizard (mesh and set-up) for the following applications:
See, for example, how to set up for self-propulsion simulation in less than 5 minutes:
Furthermore, we will preview ongoing enhancements for the C-Wizard, benefiting from the effective adaptive grid refinement and overset grid techniques.
