As part of the certification process, marine surface vessels and industrial floating structures undergo rigorous stability tests to insure the maximum safety and operability under extreme weather conditions. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how CFD analysis can be used to gain insight into the stability performance of a representative Navy vessel using ANSYS Fluent. The free surface effects on the vessel were simulated using the Volume of Fluid Method, while the vessel motion was resolved using the 6-DOF solver.
