• Marine - Hydro

The reference in hydrodynamic simulation

At NUMECA we believe in the right tool for the job, which is why we don’t believe in a generic CFD solution for the marine industry.

Therefore we have created a virtual towing tank, with built-in automation features, dedicated to naval architects. You can evaluate full-scale performance with full 3D data with certainty. No extrapolating from model scale necesarry, even if you can simulate the latter too!

Performing resistance, propulsion, sea-keeping and maneuvering calculations becomes a breeze, thanks to a simple-to-use, step-by-step process built on years of experience in the industry. Or take it to the next level and set up matrices of calculations for different speeds, angles, sea conditions or even geometrical variations, in a completely automated way.

Recently extended with brand-new solver technology, you can also perform hydraulics calculations fully transient, with no pre-processing steps! Just load your geometry and hit the solve button, to obtain a highly accurate solution.
