NUMECA | Marine Workshop

SMM CFD-Workshop – 2021

It was a successful and interesting NUMECA Marine Workshop during the SMM in Hamburg, which took place on 4 February 2021. The first time online.
Special thanks go to our speakers Benoit Mallol, Aji Purwanto, Dr. Stefan Harries, Hauke Baumfalk and Daniel Costa, who gave us exciting insights into the marine world with their presentations.
We would also like to thank all participants for their active participation and the impulses they provided through their questions.
We are already looking forward to the next Marine Workshop – whether live or online…

What did you miss?

Our traditional NUMECA CFD Workshop during the SMM week will be an online event and you are invited to join us.

Everything is new and still the same. As in the last years, we show our CFD solutions dedicated to shipbuilders, naval architects, offshore experts and maritime suppliers. And our customers will give you an exclusive insight into their projects and challenges. Finally, we will present the latest developments in FINE™/Marine and what’s about to come in the future of maritime CFD.

So what’s the new part? You can attend from the comfort of your (home) office, and still reap the benefits!

We will be showing the latest developments for high fidelity numerical simulations and everything connected to it:

  • Intuitive CAD preparation, meshing and setup?
  • Fast, accurate & highly dynamic simulations?
  • Optimisation & Acoustics?
  • First-hand experiences from our Users

New to CFD? Use our C-Wizard, the dedicated tool for Naval Architects:

  • Input: Geometry, operating conditions and 5 minutes of your time
  • Output: 3D-CFD results

Expert in CFD? See how FINE™/Marine Users benefit.

Still not convinced? We have more in store:

  • Adaptive Grid Refinement + Overset Meshes
  • Complex body motions – simply defined
  • Optimisation for hulls and propellers
  • Acoustics
  • OMNIS™
