Delivering Innovation to the Marine Industry

Sail Design Consultancy

SMAR Azure works closely with sail-makers and designers to develop and supply a range of high value-added services.

Expert professional services to help you to develop top-quality sails. SMAR Azure is equipped with the right toolset and skills to deliver a high-quality service. The toolset includes sail design & analysis software, finite element methods (FEMs) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).

Sail Design

SMAR Azure can work with sail-designers and sail-makers to develop sail shapes by using AzureProject in-house. With AzureProject, it is possible to design the sail shape with high accuracy, as it allows working on the horizontal sections and vertical lines and defining roach, battens, luff and leech shape and manufacturing details. Most importantly, with the advanced 3-dimensional (3D) vision of the sail, it is possible to check if the sail fits perfectly on the rig.

The SMAR-Azure team can help to develop sail shapes for specific projects or for creating a library of sail-molds.

Optimization of sail-shape

SMAR Azure can work with sail-designers to develop fast and performing sail shapes by using AzureProject in-house. With AzureProject analysis tools, it is possible to evaluate the drive and side forces and to calculate the flying sail-shape and stress distribution. With AzureProject, the SMAR-Azure team is able to optimize the performance of the sail-shapes as requested by the client. For instance, optimization studies can focus on developing fast shapes and/or easy to maneuver ones.

Design and Optimization of fiber layout

SMAR Azure can work with sail-designers to develop optimal fiber by using SA-Evolution in-house. With SA-Evolution, the SMAR Azure team is capable to evaluate the flying sail-shape and stress intensity and directions for a specific fiber layout. Therefore, the SMAR-Azure team is able to optimize the performance of the fiber layout according to the required performance . For instance, optimization studies can focus on developing fiber layouts that are light, able to hold shape well and easy to maneuver.

Custom Software Development

SMAR Azure can build flexible and modifiable solutions that match your specific goals, requirements and activities.
