meta simulation suite is the right tool box for naval architects or engineers wanting to simulate and optimise their designs. Foil section shape, appendage design, vpp, human-in-the-loop or sailor-less simulator, optimal control, surrogate models , design of experiments.. all aspects of the modern naval architecture process are covered in a coherent set of tools.
meta simulation suite was developed by a team of passionate engineers and sailors working together at BenjaminMuylDesign. It benefits from the experience acquired from 5 America’s cup campaigns, some imoca and 100′ designs, in tight cooperation with Guillaume Verdier. Together with BenjaminMuylDesign expertise, It will bring a complete set of tools and will be able to answer virtually any performance questions that arises during a highly demanding sailing competition program.
Being given a boat model it will return the boat performance and attitude in steady conditions.
Typically known as a “vpp”.
Assemble spine, section shapes, twist, chord, flap distributions and predicts loads. Useful for both boat model development and structural design
From data to surrogate model
Pick polynomial, RBF, neural network…or build them all and compare.
Full featured Human-in-the-loop simulator.
Useful for both designs selection and sailors training.
A airfoil/hydrofoil section shape analysis tool and a genetic algorithm working together to tailor your appendages profiles to your needs.
Quick and easy GUI to design full factorial, hypercube or Sobol experiments and export them to your prefered CFD software.
A sailor-less simulator. Thousands of runs in unsteady conditions leading to statistical performance analysis in close to real conditions.
Save users time with this “Node” based builder that allows to reuse previously defined studies to fast track next ones and manages parallelization.
The backbone holding things together.
Based on industry standard bricks and proprietary objects.
Simulate the optimum maneuver.
Design the appendages, develop controllers, benchmark the sailors.
Isochrone based batch routing software for the design evaluation of ocean racing yachts. High demanding calcs are parallelized in the cloud.
Custom developed, ready to use plot templates allow to quickly give sense to studies results. Based on industry standard Grafana.
