Capvidia Sponsors V-39 ALBATROSS – World Speed Sailing Contender

07 September 2010


The V-39 Albatross  – the world’s first three axis controlled sail boat, is being designed to break the world speed sailing record with the help of Capvidia technologies combined with Capvidia’s expertise in the area of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Multiphysics simulations.
Capvidia’s product FlowVision HPC simulates the aerodynamic and hydrodynamic behavior.  It also combines the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for the structural design to carry out a full Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) simulation to optimize the design of the V-39 Albatross.

"Using Capvidia’s CFD software and their support, we are able to optimize our design using some serious computing power."- says Tim Clarke, Engineering Director and Project Founder of Verney Yachts.
