Marine & Offshore
Wind and waves are complex phenomena, and numerical simulation is a very good alternative to experimental testing, which remains expensive, long and sometimes difficult to analyze.
Simulate accurately wave propagation and complex physics such as cavitation and wave impact
Maritime industries (marine, offshore, marine renewable energies, yachts…) must meet multiple needs such as performance optimization, safety and efficiency of operations in a very complex and hostile environment with wind, salt and waves. Experimental testing remains expensive, long and sometimes difficult to analyze with complex phenomena.
Nextflow Software developed dedicated solvers specifically for marine and offshore applications and addressing your simulation needs.
Marine and offshore design processes are complex and involve a great number of engineering steps and expertise. Simulation is the best way to ensure that designs meet technical and performance requirements. Such simulations need considerable effort, and a combination of multiple tools to succeed. With our innovative approach, you benefit from a complete integrated package, for faster and more reliable CFD results.
