The impact of cavitation on propellers and hydrofoils can harm their efficiency. Cavitation is the formation of air bubbles or cavities in water when it passes over such an appendage at high speed. It causes abnormal flow, causing problems such as vibration, noise, and erosion of solid surfaces. Accurately predicting cavitation is crucial to understanding the design factors influencing its onset and measuring its consequences. Yet, achieving precise modeling demands extremely fine meshes and a low time step, making simulations resource-intensive in terms of engineering time and computational power.

Join our upcoming webinar to discover how to streamline your workflow for cavitation analysis, making it faster and boosting its robustness, with adaptive grid refinement in Fidelity Fine Marine.

We will show you:

  • How to create a coarse mesh suited for adaptive grid refinement
  • How to set up computation based on your needs
  • A comparison with experimental results using the Delft Twist-11 hydrofoil test case
