Application: Optimizing Sail Design for the 2008 Olympics Using Simulation
Posted Wed July 02, 2008 @03:47PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Finland-based sail maker WB-Sails is using EFD.Lab fluid dynamics simulation software from Flomerics to develop and optimize sails for Star and Finn class Olympic sailboats.

“Our traditional panel codes predict sail forces reasonably well in the upwind case, when flow separation is not a major factor, but we were desperate for something more powerful to predict 3D air flow and sail forces on downwind legs and in the lighter winds that we expect in Beijing,” said Mikko Brummer, Head of R&D at WB-Sails.
