Rodrigo Azcueta, Cape Horn Engineering.
At Cape Horn Engineering we have forgone traditional towing tank and wind tunnel tests in
favor of an exclusively CFD-based design philosophy. Using STAR-CCM+ simulations are
cheaper, faster and more reliable than traditional tests. We run all simulations at full scale
which eliminates the inherent error in scaled test results. Enhanced flow visualization and
force decomposition give designers much greater understanding of flow phenomena.
