Full scale CFD simulation for marine design: An in-depth review
Scale analysis examples
The author examines scale analysis examples such as the effects of Reynolds number scaling, as well as computational mesh requirements, and shows examples of full-scale CFD simulation on complex cases. In many cases, full-scale simulation is more accurate and reliable than alternatives and leads to a greater understanding of design performance.
Analysis and design of marine structures
Full-scale analysis and design of marine structures and complete systems require digital twin technology. With robust software, simulation can be performed to mirror realistic operating conditions to ensure proper design is found. Many experienced users in the industry successfully apply CFD simulations with full-scale, read more from this review to learn the benefits of full-scale CFD.
Scale prediction software
Use cases of full-scale prediction software, and much more, can be found in this marine industry resource. In many cases, full-scale prediction is more reliable than scaling up model experiments.
