Marine (VTT) training, Simcenter STAR-CCM+, online
In this training, you will gain the ability to discuss key considerations for creating marine-related meshes. You will also learn how to identify critical areas in fluid physics that require mesh refinement in a model. The training sessions will include theoretical lectures on the Volume of Fluid (VOF) multi-physics model, VOF waves, and overset mesh technology. Participants will have the opportunity to apply their newly acquired knowledge through practical workshops and exercises.
This training is ideally suited for individuals who are already familiar with the software and for engineers with some experience in simulations. It is designed to provide insights into best practices for simulating marine applications using Simcenter STAR-CCM+.
Duration: Four half-days (4 x 4h).
Session 1: General aspects of virtual tow tank
- Volume of Fluid (VOF) Method
- Meshing Considerations
- Initial Conditions
- Boundary Conditions
- Solutions Controls
Session 2: VOF Waves
- Wave models
- Handling wave reflections (damping and forcing)
- VOF Model properties
Session 3: Introduction to Dynamic Fluid Body Interaction
- DFBI Motions
- Overset mesh
Session 4: Marine propeller analysis
- Virtual Disk Model
- Moving reference frame (MRF) approach
- Rigid Body Motion
Basic knowledge in CFD and Simcenter STAR-CCM+, potentially gained from attending to Volupe’s introductory course in Simcenter STAR-CCM+.
