NUMECA

FINE / Marine, The Leading CFD Software for Naval Architects and Marine Engineers

FINE / Marine is a unique integrated CFD software environment for the simulation of mono-fluid and multi-fluid flows around any kind of ships, boats or yacht including various types of appendages. The powerful and customized graphical user interface drives the user into the whole simulation process and integrated marine-dedicated features for different applications.

THE MOST ACCURATE CFD SOLVER ON THE MARKET
Our 6DOF incompressible flowsolver works for all types of marine applications, including free surface capturing.

THE ONLY FULLY INTEGRATED CFD SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENT FOR MARINE
A powerful, customized graphical user interface, with integrated marine-dedicated features, for the simulation of mono-fluid and multi-fluid flows around any kind of ship, boat or yacht, including various types of appendages.

A FULLY AUTOMATED MESH GENERATOR: HEXPRESS™
High-quality and full hexahedral unstructured meshes.

AUTOMATIC SET-UP OF THE CFD CHAIN WITH C-WIZARD
Drastically reduce the engineering time for the complete CFD simulations set-up. Don’t spend time on setting numerical parameters: get the job done immediately.

NEW: SEAMLESS WORKFLOW TO EXPORT YOUR CAD MODEL
Thanks to the Rhino plug-in for FINE™/Marine export your CAD model from the Rhinoceros interface directly to C-Wizard or to our meshing environment, hassle free.
