Preparing the Geometry for CFD Process using Rhino

Cloud Towing Tank has been kind enough to share an article about “Preparing the Geometry for CFD Process using Rhino”:

“In order to conduct a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation of a ship, high quality surface geometry is needed in order to generate the computational grid. The geometry needs to be watertight, without manifolds, and it needs to accurately represent the real vessel. For us, Rhino has always been and continues to be the main tool for adjusting the input geometry we receive from our clients. This is mainly due to the quality of the STL files that it produces, which is the input format for our simulations. In this example, we used Rhino to prepare ship geometry for a CFD study on the influence of rudders on overall propulsion power.”
