Numerical Research :Computational Fluid Dynamics

Steady / unsteady aerodynamics

Using state of the art numerical simulations, A2V is able to
accurately predict the aerodynamic behavior of complex
shapes, in both steady and unsteady conditions.

High speed hull resistance prediction

The simulation of high speed stepped planing hulls is solved by
means of FINE/Marine, from NUMECA in order to get accurate
prediction of hull resistance.

Surface piercing propeller

The challenging numerical simulation of surface piercing
propellers is currently under development in order to improve
our understanding of this promising propulsion system and its
interaction with the boat’s behavior.

Mathematical modeling

Unsteady aerodynamics of wing inground-effect

Using intensive systematic CFD simulations, A2V has developed
a fully unsteady aerodynamic model for wing in ground effect.

Hydrodynamic model ofstepped planing hulls

Our in house hydrodynamic model for stepped hulls solves the
hydrodynamic behavior in both frequency and time domain.

Seakeeping simulator

Our 2 DOF seakeeping simulator couples the semi-empirical
hydrodynamic model with the aerodynamic model.

Manoeuvrability

A user-friendly manoeuvering simulator is able to simulate
boat-landing approaches and low speed manoeuvers in general.
It can be implemented in virtual reality simulators for training
purposes.
