Our main services

We evaluate and optimize hydrodynamic performance
through numerical studies of many hull shapes using manual or automatic methods. Our services enable you to increase ship's energy efficiency and improve performance.

Design risks can be limited
thanks to simulation of the ship in high-risk situations identified by the architect, such as : heave impacts, slamming, behavior on swell, maneuvering capacity.

We can identify and understand the root of hydrodynamic problems
enabling us to react rapidly in order to find the origin of a problem identified during trials at sea or in the towing tank. Our aim is to present a remedial solution without delay.

We analyze and improve the understanding of complex physical phenomenon related to fluid mechanics
by performing up to multi physics or multi-species simulations which are often impossible to reproduce reliably in experiments.

Our solutions bring you

Time-savings
Using simulation tools enables you to reduce evaluation time to a few hours or days. We ensure the quick return of calculation results guaranteeing seamless integration in your design process.

Accuracy and reliability
Tools developed and used by HydrOcean are consistently validated against benchmark tests at sea or in towing tank.

Decreased costs
Using HydrOcean simulation tools enables you to significantly reduce study costs in comparison with standard simulation tools or model tests.

Tools suited to your most complex uses
HydrOcean has a wide range of solvers at its disposal which allows us to handle the most complex applications. We are also able to adapt our solvers to your specific requirements and needs.

Highly qualified team with specific skills
The HydrOcean Team is composed of engineers in Numerical Hydrodynamics, with an experimental background and extensive knowledge in the marine field.
