2009 - OSK-ShipTech A/S purchases STAR-CCM+ software

OSK-ShipTech A/S has purchased the computational fluid dynamic code STAR-CCM+ from CD-Adapco. STAR-CCM+ is a state of the art CFD tool which enables early stage design investigations by means of hull form optimization, resistance calculations, appendage alignment, sea keeping and much more. All kinds of flows can be simulated and studied in detail. Using CFD in the early design phase is very powerful and cost effective, as the resistance is predicted within 5%. This ensures correct and optimal choice of main engine, gearbox, propellers etc. Furthermore the flow around the hull is investigated, so inappropriate flow is eliminated or significantly reduced.
