Solutions for the Shipbuilding Sector

Use engineering simulation software in order to validate the performance and reliability of a new design, reduce experimental tests, costs and engineering time. Discover the software solutions distributed by BSim and dedicated to the shipbuilding sector.


Consumption and Emissions Analysis

Quickly build virtual prototypes of different design layouts of the propulsion system

Compare the dynamic performance of each design, on the same mission profile, by extrapolating emissions and fuel consumption trends.

Identify the best trade-off between performance and efficiency.

3D Fluid Dynamics Simulation

Analyze the fluid-dynamic and thermal behavior of the product, directly from the CAD and with the automatic meshing system proposed by FloEFD.

Study fluid mechanics through its main variables: pressure, temperature, density, speed, viscosity.

1D Fluid Dynamics of Hydraulic Networks

Study the motion of compressible fluids in hydraulic and pneumatic ducts, and the influence of temperature on movement.

Evaluate the impact of the plant’s operating conditions and simulate emergency cases.

The calculation is made on the single dimension of fluid movement, with a much shorter calculation time than classic CFD-3D.


Power Management and Electrification

Virtually model and simulate new hybrid propulsion architectures, by evaluating the performance of different configurations in series or parallel:

  • identify the system energy demand in relation to the desired performance;
  • simulate performance during operation, identify optimal control in order to maximize efficiency and by reducing fuel consumption;
  • study energy absorption of all the ship’s systems, in order to prevent possible dissipations and the impact on global fuel consumption.
