Simulazioni fluidodinamiche di una imbarcazione di coppa America ai limiti delle possibilità computazionali


In this article we present the application of computational fluid dynamics analysis to the case of sail wind engi¬neering. In particular the context, the method and the perspectives of such approach are discussed referring to the largest CFD case ever performed on a Americas Cup size yacht. This work is the main output of an ongoing scientific collaboration among CILEA and academics and industrial partners concerning the applicability of CFD analysis to wind engineering design.
