A study titled “Coupled Sail and Appendage Design Method for Multihulls based on Numerical Optimization“, conducted by Design Methods, was awarded by ANSYS as one of the best-in-class simulation of the year within the annual Hall of Fame competition. The competition acts as a method to showcase some of the most complex engineering simulation by images or animations representative of the work. Design Methods presented an image describing the typical numerical analysis involved in the research project.
