Optimization in naval hydrodynamics

This year, a new partnership with the company K-Epsilon, specialized in numerical studies for naval hydrodynamic applications, has been initiated. The objective is to apply design optimization methods developed in OPALE to challenging and emerging design problems, such as mast and keel design for sailing race boats or bow design for fishing boats.

This collaboration is supported by the INRIA program ATT (Action de Transfert Technologique), which granted the enrolment of A. Maurice as engineer for a period of six months. This allowed the adaption of the FAMOSA software to the problems treated by K-Epsilon and the achievement of a first study related to mast section design.
