Delivering Sophisticated Software to model Free Surface Flows
Sophisticated modelling tools are required to design hydro turbines that will provide the most efficient conversion of wave and tidal energy. As part of its work with the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI), the University of Edinburgh called on Renuda's expertise to help implement a Level Set algorithm for free surface flow simulations in the Open Source general CFD code Code_Saturne.
"RENUDA WERE ABLE TO QUICKLY IDENTIFY WHERE THE POTENTIAL PROBLEM MIGHT BE. THEY HAD A VERY GOOD UNDERSTANDING OF THE ISSUES THAT MADE THE FLOW SOLVER UNSTABLE, AND KNEW EXACTLY HOW TO CORRECT THEM". Prof. David Ingram, Professor of CFD, Institute for Energy Systems, University of Edinburgh.
