    31 Mar 2021

    We often hear about the burden of meshing preparations taking longer than the entire rest of the CFD chain. Cadence-NUMECA has a solution for that. The OMNIS™ environment offers many modern and intuitive meshing preparation tools that enable users to set up meshes for highly complex geometries in a matter of minutes.

    This 30-minute webinar explained and demonstrated these tools on different configurations and geometries.

    24 Mar 2021

    OMNIS™ is a design system that provides all tools for fast, accurate aerodynamic and structural analysis for many different types of fans and applications, reducing time-to-market and the costs associated with the many iterations of prototype building, scaling, and testing.

    In this webinar you will learn about:
    – An introduction to different types of fans and the design methods behind them
    – How to effectively simulate the performance of industrial fans with OMNIS™
    – The aerodynamic and structural analysis of different types of fans and applications

    17 Mar 2021

    FINE™/Marine and sailing yacht design are like water and fish: they are inseparable. With its vast experience working for the world’s top sailing boat designers in the context of the America’s Cup, the Vendée Globe, and plenty of other international racing regattas, FINE™/Marine’s development in sailing yacht CFD requirements is unrivaled, particularly in terms of meshing strategies, hydrofoil design, fully automated workflows, etc…

    This webinar explained in detail all the different features FINE™/Marine has to offer for sailing boat design and as such, is a “must watch” for marine engineers and naval architects working in the sailing yacht industry.

    Webinar: Simulate the Dynamics of Particles with OMNIS™/MPACTS
    Wed 3 Mar 2021 3pm GMT

    In this webinar learn all about the DEM method to simulate and optimize particle interactions in industrial processes.

    NUMECA demonstrated with a user case from one specific sector in particle management: mixing applications. Some of its main challenges being: how to make sure the mixing of all components is homogeneous, and how to ensure this mixing occurs in minimal time?

    Catenary Approach for Cable Modelling on Hydrodynamic Applications
    18 Dec 2020

    Thanks to NUMECA’s new collaboration with D-ICE Engineering, cables can be modeled with a higher degree of accuracy in FINE™/Marine. This new module, called Catway, uses a catenary approach for modeling the lines with a quasi-static determination of the tension forces exerted on attached bodies. It also raises the bar of traditional quasi-static modeling by allowing fully three-dimensional set-ups for complex computations involving mooring systems for vessels and floating offshore structures.

    1-2 Dec 2020
