Computational Fluid Dynamics
Navatek Applied Research has a wide array of experience in using FINE/Marine, Star CCM+, OpenFoam, and CFX/ANSYS in the design and analysis of ocean systems. From small, high-speed planing boats to large, zero-speed structures, these codes have proven extremely accurate and robust. As with any complex tool, the key to its use is the knowledge of the user. Because of the complexity of most real world problems, simply operating the code is not sufficient; a deep knowledge of the both the physics embodied in the underlying equations and the quality of the numerical solution is imperative. Additionally, Navatek has experience applying these codes to complex flow through pipes, in examining rotating machinery, and looking at coupled aerodynamic/hydrodynamic problems.
