Two winners of the 2021 Transat Jacques Vabre race use the ISIS-CFD calculation code developed at the LHEEA

2 more gold medals for FINE/Marine! Gitana Maxi Edmond de Rothschild and LinkedOut were both winners in the 2021 edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre Normandy Le Havre.

The first Ultim and the first Imoca to cross the finish line were designed by Guillaume Verdier using FINE/Marine CloudPower. NUMECA Int.'s FINE™/Marine software includes ISIS-CFD, the marine flow solver developed at LHEEA (Centrale Nantes/CNRS) by the METHRIC research group.

This flow calculation software is designed for the numerical modelling of turbulent flows of viscous incompressible fluids around geometries of arbitrary complexity. The significance of the software lies in its various fields of application, in particular in the maritime sector for design and optimisation. In the specific context of yacht racing, it is used to optimise boat and foil aerodynamics.
