Print version Email story Tweet story
News A research project, recently completed by Dr. Ignazio Maria Viola at the Yacht Research Unit of the University of Auckland, New Zealand, has demonstrated that the resistance of America’s Cup Yachts can be predicted with a high level of accuracy using CD-adapco’s engineering simulation tool STAR-CCM+.

Dr. Viola used two candidate monohull designs from the 32nd America’s Cup to compare numerical simulation results from STAR-CCM+ with experimental results from a towing-tank.
