JMU possesses advanced test tank facilities, enabling a wide range of model testing and experimental research. The company’s Tsu site has a Towing Tank and an Ice Tank (only such facility owned by a private company in Japan), while Yokohama has a Seakeeping & Maneuvering Tank. These test tanks are actively used together with CFD (computational fluid dynamics) tools and used as powerful fluid performance design/development tools.
We are participating in a project to perform larger-scale and more precise simulations of flows around a ship using Fugaku, a supercomputer that boasts one of the world’s leading computing capabilities. Highly accurate evaluations of detailed flow features will be achieved.
