SimFWD provides to customers integrated design and engineering services in Maritime / Offshore and Shipbuilding projects of different types and size. Our range of services starts from the concept idea until the ship is put in service and continues through life-cycle service as maintenance, repair and conversion.
Our background in Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE), Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in the Maritime and Automotive industry has encouraged the development and application of simulation methods to solve the most demanding engineering problems.
SimFWD is a value-added CAE reseller of the following tools in Greece and the Balkans:
•CAESES – When designing components or products featuring performance critical shapes, such as turbo-machinery blades, ship hulls, or engine components, CAESES is the ideal modelling, integration and automation framework for maximizing analysis throughput. It can be used for Shape optimization.
•CAFE – CAFE is a very powerful user-oriented ship modelling software which reduces modelling time considerably. It also includes a robust meshing module. FE models and hydrodynamic mesh can be transferred to external solver such as NASNNSTRAN, FIAP, LS-DYNA and OOFEM
•midasNFX – MidasNFX offers multi-disciplinary features including structural analysis, CFD analysis and topology optimization. Its integrated pre-processor with a highly intuitive GUI and a multitude of post-processing capabilities enables users to tackle problems existing in various fields of engineering. Users are offered all these functionalities in a reasonably priced single package!
•FINE™/Marine – FINE™/Marine is a unique integrated CFD software environment for the simulation of mono-fluid and multi-fluid flows around any kind of ships, boats or yacht including various types of appendages.
•MAAT Hydro – MAAT Hydro + is the first fully 3D hydrostatic calculator based on direct integration of water pressure fields on float faces. MAAT Hydro +’s advanced new generation hydrostatic engines able to calculate the behaviour of any kind of floating object in any condition, making hydrostatic analysis easier, faster and extremely accurate whenever necessary.
