It is widely recognized that computer-aided engineering (CAE) has been playing an increasingly significant role in the marine industry in recent years. On the other hand, not many know that mesh morphing is an essential technology that can greatly improve computer simulation.
Sailing and engineering teams have been dealing with a new set of challenges ranging from boat handling, tactics and, it goes without saying, the design of these new vessels and their subsystems.

This technical article describes a comparative study that was undertaken by Intermarine, with the assistance of EnginSoft, between using the Flownex simulation environment and Intermarine’s manual or classic methods (both of which were compared with actual field data from on-board measurements) to predict pressure losses in the various piping systems that convey fluids on board a vessel.

In this study, Alfa Laval and EnginSoft present the results of a simulation of the methanol fuel supply system currently used on a methanol carrier.
The America’s Cup isn’t just the first sailing competition in history, it’s also the first when it comes to innovation. Learn how American Magic engineers partnered with ESTECO to prepare for their next challenge
Modern propeller requirements involve many different characteristics, not limiting only to maximum efficiency, but considering also propeller cavitating behavior and, more and more, its side effects, in terms of radiated noise and pressure pulses.

The main structure of the yacht is made of composite laminates with the presence of many composite reinforcements and bonded joints. We conducted a detailed structural analysis of the entire structure and verified the structural requirements.
Cimolai Technology explains the business benefits it has achieved since the installation in terms of time savings in planning, and design, and improvements in product quality and in delivery forecast ability.

In this study, the focus was on the oil supply system for the big-end-bearings of an 18-cylinder engine, which is one of the largest four-stroke gas engines in existence, ideal for base load applications. Wärtsilä and EnginSoft created a moving-particle simulation model, a meshless method of solving Navier-Stokes equations, which allows complex geometries with moving parts to be simulated.
