NUMECA International Congratulates Emirates Team New Zealand for Impressive America’s Cup Effort

BRUSSELS and SAN FRANCISCO - Utilizing NUMECA FINE™/Marine fluid dynamics software for hydrodynamic modeling capability, Emirates Team New Zealand  (ETNZ) nearly edged out Oracle Team USA in the 34th America's Cup. ETNZ held the lead in the series as the competition entered the final two races.
NUMECA International is proud to have contributed to this success through our dedicated software environment, FINE™/Marine, and through the support of our engineers, creating a dynamic partnership with the ETNZ designers,” said Professor Charles Hirsch, President of NUMECA. Emirates Team New Zealand utilized FINE™/Marine for both hull development and appendage analysis (primarily boards and rudders) on its AC72 catamaran.
 Prior to the America’s Cup competition, ETNZ won the Louis Vuitton Cup, defeating Team Luna Rossa, who also utilized FINE™/Marine in their ship designs.

Fast and easy 3D acoustic troubleshooting

From sound to source in minutes

Acoustic troubleshooting is a challenging yet essential process for many types of industries. With the patented SoundBrush solution, LMS introduces a revolutionary and complete tool that helps you see what you hear.
SoundBrush is the first ever technology to visualize the sound field in 3D while measuring.
The core of the compact SoundBrush solution is the patented optical tracking technology, combined with either a sound pressure microphone or a 3D intensity sensor.
But SoundBrush is not merely functionally brilliant, it also offers outstanding user-friendliness with easy setup and plug and play features.
See what you hear, in full 3D
LMS SoundBrush makes sound visible. When moving the probe freely around the test object in any orientation or position, the sound field is immediately displayed on your screen in 3D.
The automatic position detection facilitates the interpretation of the 3D sound field that is displayed together with a 3D model of the test object. As this happens in real-time, there is no need for post processing.
Fast, easy, intuitive
LMS SoundBrush brings unmatched user comfort and efficiency to acoustic troubleshooting.
Getting started with LMS SoundBrush is child’s play. Simply click the antenna with the acoustic sensor onto the probe, plug the USB probe and the camera into your PC and start the software. The system automatically recognizes the antenna type. No calibration is required.
Moreover, the software follows an intuitive workflow that guides you through logical steps from setup to report. No training is required. Powerful 3D data representation allows a quick and accurate interpretation of the measured data.
In short, no time is lost setting up or handling the system, which means that you can fully focus on solving the acoustic problem.
Compact and integrated
Last but not least, LMS SoundBrush is a compact, yet truly all-in-one solution: one, single system – without the need for additional measurement hardware or analysis software – that neatly fits in a handheld travel case. Easy to take with you and get started!

    The UQ-Module for Uncertainty Quantification: Another FIRST from NUMECA International 

    Most designers are aware that many variables entering the simulation process have a range of uncertainty, such as operational (boundary) conditions, geometric or modeling parameters. With this new tool from NUMECA, you will be able to reduce the risks associated to your simulation based design decision process, by: 

    • Specifying and quantifying input uncertainties as probability density functions (pdf) 
    • Obtaining predicted quantities with uncertainty bars 
    • Obtaining predicted quantities as probability density functions, instead of single values, defining hereby a range of confidence

    Van Voorden Maritime: “FINE/Marine is the most advanced CFD software for the marine industry” (Plugged from

    Van Voorden Maritime: “FINE/Marine is the most advanced CFD software for the marine industry”
    07.03.13 Increase in knowledge and better performing product for its customers thanks to NUMECA’s FINE/Marine!

    A proper understanding of the flow around the ship is needed when designing an efficient propulsion system. With the purchase of the CFD package FINE/Marine, Van Voorden Maritime is now able to simulate flows around ships in-house, resulting in an increase in knowledge and a better performing product for its customers.

    Customized propeller With increasing computer power, nowadays it’s possible to perform more complex calculations and simulations. This is for a propeller designer no different; where in the early days use was made of diagrams and comparable ships it’s now possible to design a customized propeller which is tailored to the ship and the customers needs.

    One of the most interesting data to achieve such a high performance propeller is the wake field which is the plane where the propeller operates. This data is typically shown with three variables; axial, tangential and radial velocities. These can then be further processed in the design software of Van Voorden to create the best possible, smooth running propeller with optimal thrust while taking into account the actual flow at the propeller. This kind of propeller is referred as the third generation and is developed by Van Voorden as a ‘Next Generation Propeller’.

    Most advanced CFD software for the marine industry The wake field can be obtained from full scale CFD calculations. Other sources for these fields are model tests (with a wake field on model scale) or from similar ships from our database. However, latter two methods bring some uncertainties in the propeller design process. To ensure a high quality product Van Voorden recently bought the CFD package FINE/Marine, the most advanced CFD software for the marine industry. With the purchase Van Voorden is the first propeller manufacturer in the world to acquire such this advanced simulation software. Next to predicting the wake field, CFD calculations will also be used to simulate the wave pattern and flow details near the hull and/or appendages which also may effect the performance of the propeller.

    Unlimited possibilities Furthermore the company has now unlimited possibilities to further develop the design of propellers into fourth generation (interaction between propeller and hull) and fifth generation (taking into account interaction between hull and propeller for different design conditions). Also other research projects for cavitation effects and for specific markets (luxury yachts, fishery, inland shipping) can now be taken to the next level. With this investment Van Voorden Maritime is ready for the feature and ready to set the new standard in propeller design.
