Delivering Innovation to the Marine Industry

Velocity Prediction

The SMAR Azure team offers expert professional analysis service to support yacht designer in their activities.

Our approach:

Using the proprietary sail design and advanced analytical tools, SMAR-Azure is capable of designing sail-shapes that fit the rig provided by the yacht designer and to evaluate the matrices of coefficients ready to be used by the by commercial and custom VPPs. Sail coefficients are calculated for both upwind and downwind conditions. For downwind conditions, SMAR Azure uses advanced CFD-Ranse tool and it will be in charge of the pre and post processing operations.


Since the full aeroelastic behaviour of the sail can be taken into account, SMAR Azure can deliver not only sail coefficients for upwind and downwind sailing conditions, but also the relative coefficients on flying sail-shapes.
