Print version Email story Tweet story
News The development of best practice guidelines for marine applications of CFD has been a major task within the MARNET-CFD Thematic Network. These are now complete, and are available to download in pdf format (bpg.pdf - approx. 3MB).

The approach adopted was to bring together three important and recent developments in this field. These elements are:

  1. The newly published ERCOFTAC Best Practice Guidelines for the application of CFD.
  2. The existing ITTC guidelines for uncertainty analysis in CFD. These include manuals on: uncertainty assessment methodology, guidelines for RANS codes, and examples for resistance and flow.
  3. The development of Application Procedures for particular types of marine CFD calculations, eg. propeller flows, non-linear free surface flow etc., using 1 above combined with specific know-how and specialist knowledge.

This has brought MARNET-CFD in line with new initiatives being supported by the European Commission in the area of Quality and Trust in Industrial CFD, and should bring significant benefits in know-how, links to other Networks and databases, and approaches to best practice.
