GL and CD-adapco: CFD Cooperation

Thursday, December 06, 2007
(L to R): Engin Cetindogan, Account Manager at CD-adapco, Raimund Schipp, European Director of Sales at CD-adapco, Karsten Fach, GL's Head of Competence Center Engineering Services, Prof. Milovan Peric, Technical Director for CD-Adapco, and Dr Ould el Moctar Head of Department Fluid Dynamics at GL.

CD-adapco, a global enterprise offering computationally-based engineering solutions, and the classification society Germanischer Lloyd (GL) will cooperate even closer in future. The two companies signed an agreement whereby they will work together in the sector of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for marine applications. The future collaboration will comprise of mutual publications, development, validation as well as workshops.

Dr Ould el Moctar, GL's Head of Department Fluid Dynamics, explains: "Germanischer Lloyd and CD-adapco have already been working together for many years. Both parties have considerable experience in the field of CFD analyses." Former joint publications by CD-adapco's Technical Director, Prof Dr Milovan Peric, and Dr el Moctar include papers on "Wave Loads" or the "Simulation of Sloshing in LNG-Tanks".

The importance of computer-aided engineering in shipping cannot be underestimated, the GL-expert stresses: "The technological progress of simulation in this sector is rapid, both for software and hardware. Simulation technology is employed in a wide range of marine applications and often plays a critical role in the decision making process." Raimund Schipp, CD-adapco's European Director of Sales, adds: "Computer simulation technology is finally fulfilling its enormous potential. The availability of accurate and reliable predictions at the earliest stage of the design process leads to significant savings in effort and money, compared to performing tests and amending the design later in the process."
