In the past, marine design with CFD was expensive, required the expertise of a specialist, and wasn’t practical on ordinary engineering computers. Now Orca3D Marine CFD has changed all of that, coupling the power and ease-of-use of Rhino, Orca3D, and SimericsMP with specially designed templates to allow naval architects to easily and affordably analyze the hydrodynamic performance of displacement and planing hull designs with confidence in the results. Both monohulls and multihulls can be explored, and the effects of local design features including steps, spray rails, lifting strakes, flaps, trim tabs, foils, and other appendages can be investigated with high fidelity. With Orca3D Marine CFD, it takes just minutes to set up and start an analysis, and it is practical to run on ordinary engineering laptops or desktops.
Previous webinars have presented the process of going from a hull model in Rhino/Orca3D to a completed CFD analysis (view the recording here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O40EqkyuQCk&feature=youtu.be). This next webinar will begin with a brief overview of that process and a presentation of benchmarks, and then we will move on to focus on the advanced analyses available in the Premium version of Orca3D Marine CFD. Finally, we will present the very affordable pricing options and the steps to follow to get a free 30-day evaluation of the software, including technical support.
And if you missed the last CFD webinar with Rob Kaidy, VP of Engineering for SeaVee Boats, you can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGJtLiFX1rA. Watch as Rob shows how he implemented Orca3D Marine CFD at SeaVee Boats, first benchmarking it on some of their existing boats and then using it to validate their latest high speed, stepped hull, offshore fishing boat before committing to the tooling.
