Interesting Facts

We used CFD to investigate the effect of energy-saving devices on Wagenborg Shipping’s R-class vessels. This involved a combination of model- and full-scale calculations, tank testing, and extrapolating results to full scale. The results obtained using CFD and tank testing matched very closely.
