Marine Industry

ANSYS is a powerful engineering software tool that can be used to simulate many types of industrial flow and heat transfer processes.

ANSYS has provided advanced computational fluid dynamics technology to the Marine Industries for many years. ANSYS CFD solutions have been used to:

- Analyze the unsteady flow behind a propeller in order to:

  • decrease noise
  • decrease vibration
  • predict stress
  • assist in scale-up
  • optimize design
  • decrease energy requirements

- Perform fire simulations for:

  • safety
  • fire suppression

- Assist in design optimization for all kinds of rotating equipment including pumps, fans and compressors

- Analysis of fuel/water mixing in ship compensated fuel/ballast tanks to reduce the potential for pollution during refueling.
