Hydrodynamic for naval applications

For the shipbuilding industry, numerical simulation has become an essential in complement to model tests, sometimes replacing them on some projects. The benefits in terms of design time decrease, performance improvements and design risks reduction are significant.

Resistance
Calculations of ship resistance with or without appendages, at model or full scale. 
Optimization of ships’ hydrodynamic performance : minimization of the resistance, power, wake, the wave field ...

Propulsion
Simulation of self-propelled ship in order to compute the propulsive power, to study the propeller / hull / appendages interactions, calculate the wake and thrust deduction...

Added resistance in waves and seakeeping
Added resistance calculation of a ship in waves, sea keeping computations in regular or irregular waves, mono or multi directional waves.
Simulation of slamming or green water impacts on a ship...

Maoeuvrability
Calculations of maneuverability coefficients in pure drift, pure gyrating, or combined drift and gyrating cases.
