Webinar | Integrating XFlow, WB-Sails and modeFRONTIER for Olympic sail optimization

Feb 15
Feb 15
15 February 2017
Online

Expert engineers from WB-SailsNext Limit Dynamics and ESTECO are pleased to announce the joint webinar that will demonstrate the advantages of the integration of their software, illustrating the details of the models, and presenting the results of the optimization.

The focus of the webinar is to illustrate the optimization process used to enhance the shape of the sails used for Olympic disciplines and produced by the Finnish WB-Sails.

The “flying shape” of the sail is modeled by a parametric CAD (Catia v5), and a non-stationary simulation, including sail, mast, boom and boat components, is performed using XFlow, the CFD software by Next Limit Dynamics, recently acquired by Dassault Systèmes. 


The automatic simulation process was set up in modeFRONTIER using its workflow automation capabilities. With only few simulation the optimization algorithm was able to identify the optimal shape, while minimizing resistance and heeling moment on the boat.
