Cape Horn Engineering – IWSA Supporter

Industry leading CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) consultancy, specialising in design optimisation of commercial ships, renewables and racing yachts (including America’s Cup campaigns and Volvo Ocean Races). With renowned expertise in aerodynamics and hydrodynamics, their simulations provide solutions for wind propulsion technology.

We can assess and provide accurate analysis of the potential savings and performance results, taking into account factors such as the aerodynamics of the thrust producing devices, the vessel hydrodynamics, propulsion system and the optimal routing. By using cutting edge CFD technology, thousands of high-fidelity CFD simulations can be performed and analysed, in varying wind and sea conditions, including extreme load cases. The simulations are used to set up force models needed to accurately predict the vessel’s hydrodynamic and aerodynamic behaviour. Design optimisation can then be considered to improve performance, efficiency, safety and reliability, reduce emissions and save on fuel.
