SHIPFLOW 6.4.01

SHIPFLOW 6.4.01 contains several important improvements over the previous release. Design is now based on CAESES 4.3.1. Most of the changes are not directly visible to the user but effects accuracy and facilitate the usage of the software. We therefore strongly recommend to update to the new release.

Shanghai New International Expo Centre - Shanghai, China

Marintec China has become one of the most recognized maritime trade shows in Asia. It is an international marketplace with exhibitors showing their latest marine, ship design, offshore engineering and port technology and an important meeting place for the maritime industry professionals. FLOWTECH has participate in the exhibition on a regular basis since 2005 and it has become an important event for demonstrating the latest developments of SHIPFLOW to the visitors and to meet with our customers.

Welcome to visit us at the Swedish Pavilion, hall N1, stand no. N1H01.

Parametric roll

The video shows the motion of the DTC container ship experience parametric roll. The prediction was produced with the release 6.3 of SHIPFLOW MOTIONS.

In this simulation the wave encounter frequency is approximately twice the natural roll frequency and the wavelength of the encountering wave is approximately equal to the ship length. The ship was given an initial roll of one degree in order to trigger the roll. No viscous damping was added in this case.

 

Added resistance in regular head sea wavesSHIPFLOW 6.2

The major news are:

  • Improved accuracy of ship motion and added resistance in waves
  • Improved MOTIONS robustness
  • Added user defined damping coefficients e.g. roll damping
  • Multiple improvements to overlapping grid algorithm

Accelerate SHIPFLOW Simulations on Rescale

In this webinar we demonstrate how SHIPFLOW users can benefit from using Rescale’s on-demand, HPC cloud platform.

CFD is used extensively for the hydrodynamic design of ships, including evaluation of resistance, delivered power, added resistance, or even for automatic hull shape optimization. However, limited local computing resources and deadline constraints can limit the CFD scope for these projects. Whether working with a few large computations or many smaller computations in an optimization, access to additional resources in the cloud can be the solution.
