Refresco

Viscous flows are important actors in the determination of loads and responses of structures at sea. ReFRESCO allows us to predict loads and visualise local flow physics, enabling us to increase our understanding and improve sea-going structures, making oceans safer and cleaner.

applications

Ship resistance

Resistance predictions with multi-phase simulations including free surface, or form-factor determination using single phase double-body simulations are parts of the mainstream applications.

Propulsion

Propeller performance in open-water or in-behind, at full scale or model scale can be predicted. Cavitation and acoustics model are also available for advanced studies.

manoeuvring capabilities

Forces from low to design speed, under constant drift angle and constant yaw rate can be predicted to help finetuning fast-time manoeuvring models.

motions and forces in waves

Motions and forces in waves can be evaluated thanks to the easy to use wave boundary conditions and the wave restoring zones available in the solver.

roll damping

Viscous roll damping from appendages at zero and forward speed can be studied. Anti-roll tanks responses can also be predicted.

Refresco Participation

For partners willing to collaborate with us and use ReFRESCO, we propose three flexible frameworks. Participation in any of the frameworks comes with an unlimited number of parallel users, cpu cores and parallel computations. Access to our calcultion facility can also be arranged to run challenging cases in a reliable way.

refresco-research

The ReFRESCO Research framework can be join for free. This framework is aimed towards public research where the results can be openly shared. Access to the source-code is possible for people who explicitely need to develop new features.

refresco-operation

The ReFRESCO Operation framwork is a paid framework within which partners can use the code for commercial application. We provide access to the solver, our best-pratice guidelines, our tools and provide support to our partners against a yearly fee.

refresco-pro

ReFRESCO-Pro enables partners to have access to the solver on a monthly basis per project. This is made for partners who do not need full time access to a CFD solver, but want to perform CFD on their own.
