Coastal & Maritime Case Studies

Earthrace vesselOur customers use FLOW-3D for coastal and maritime applications, including protecting fragile coastlines, simulating wave impact on structures, optimizing hull design, and studying ventilation within a ship.

(We) were able to see how the boat was likely to perform in the different types of seas we were likely to come across on our global voyage. We were then able to modify the design to ensure that not only speed, but fuel efficiency and safety were taken into account.
