Aerodynamics of AIDA cruise vessels of the next generation
MET Motoren- und Energietechnik GmbH is rendering study and calculation service to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), for optimizing the aerodynamics of a new series of cruise vessels for the German shipping company AIDA Cruises. The AIDA newbuildings of the next generation shall match the highest safety standards, guarantee a highly satisfying passenger comfort and be in service with a minimum of specific emissions. As well a rigorous knowledge about the air flow situation around the ship, the exhaust behaviour and the wind comfort is required in a very early design stage. These questions can be answered quickly and efficiently by means of numerical flow simulations (CFD) used successfully by us.
