Effective collaboration accross the miles
Friendship Systems AG and HydroComp Inc. of Durham, NH have completed an international collaborative project for an optimized autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) hull design. This was done by using the pricipal software tools of both companies as a coupled solution. Geometric modeling and optimization was performed by the Friendship Systems CAESES tool with hydrodynamic analysis conducted in HydroComp NavCad. This study employed the new scripting module in NavCad (premium edition) and its ability to be run as a coupled solver. (…) Read the full article – Marine Technology (April 2015) pages 24-26.
