CFD Development
The MARIN R&D team 'CFD development' is in charge of the development of CFD codes within MARIN and their early application. Furthermore, support is given during complex commercial applications of the CFD tools, e.g. regarding the setup of the cases and the interpretation of the results. In case dedicated modifications to the codes are required, or when user-coding has to be developed, the team can provide assistance.

The development efforts are mainly directed towards the viscous-flow solvers PARNASSOS and ReFRESCO. However, the extensive experience of the team members is also used for other tools, for instance potential-flow solvers. The team’s research activities are linked to the CFD Development research programme.
