CFD simulation Cape Horn Engineering has developed a simulation workﬂow to directly compare the eﬃciency of wind assisted propulsion (WASP) devices. The simulations take into account the most important eﬀects of adding the wings, Flettner rotors or any other type of wind powered device to the vessel. Both the water ﬂow experienced by the hullRead more
As environmental concerns are influencing a greater need for renewable and sustainable energy across the world, specialist technologies are at the forefront of new designs and solutions. The innovative EcoClipper ship concept has been created by a group of visionaries to help reduce global emissions and to create a greener, shipping industry. EcoClipper 500 ConcentratingRead more
Environmental concerns are influencing a greater need for renewable and sustainable energy across the world with specialist technologies being at the forefront of new designs and solutions. The environmental impact of shipping includes air pollution, water pollution, acoustic, and oil pollution. Commercial ships are responsible for more than 18 percent of some air pollutants, including greenhouseRead more
Cape Horn Engineering was appointed by the global energy company Repsol to conduct CFD simulations on two types of off-shore wind turbine platforms. Floating platforms are exposed to the challenging environment of high winds, strong currents and high sea states. This investigation was carried out to predict the behaviour of the two types of platforms inRead more
The global market for wind energy at wind farms onshore and offshore is advancing, and it has never before been so important to increase the effectiveness of how turbines are harvesting the wind. At Cape Horn Engineering we apply our expertise in flow analysis and simulation automation from America’s Cup sailing wings technology into windRead more
Cape Horn Engineering have developed a robust procedure for coupling the mesoscale WRF weather model with a high resolution CFD flow solver (Star-CCM+). The aim of the project was to develop a tool capable of predicting, with a high degree of accuracy, the wind conditions over a reduced zone of complex topology, taking into accountRead more
