OPTIMAD has developed original tools which may help the Marine and Ground Transportation industry to tackle technological challenges in the field of energy efficiency, performance improvement and riding comfort.
aero- and hydro-dynamic analysis
conjugate heat transfer
prediction of passenger comfort
Our incompressible flow solver is based on immersed interface formulation, which allows a straight-forward treatment of complex geometries, free-surface flows and is particularly suited for shape and topological optimisation.
advanced shape-parametrization using Free-Form Deformation
automatic mesh generation and mesh adaptivity
moving interfaces through Level-Sets
We have a sound background in flow control theory which may be applied in order to decrease aerodynamic drag, provide lift increase or augment passenger comfort by reducing flow separations, unsteady loads, acoustic sources
OPTIMAD develops hybrid 1D-3D modelling tools, which provide a framework for multi-scale simulation of fluid cycles.
