Wikki presents rapid naval steady-resistance simulation
The prestigious 30th ONR Symposium on Naval Hydrodynamics has just taken place in Hobart, Australia. Wikki has presented its innovative solver for rapid viscous free-surface steady-resistance calculations of ship hulls. This solver gives a speed-up of about one order of magnitude compared to conventional free-surface RANSE simulations. This is a special advantage in the design process, when steady-resistance calculations are performated on large scale within automated optimisation workflows.
The solver is available as part of Wikki's Naval-Hydrodynamics package together with specialist support.
