External hydrodynamics XFlow provides a virtual water channel module for free surface simulations. It can be used to analyze the flow around ship hulls, predict their resistance, seakeeping, loads on components, and the downstream wake of both surface and submerged watercraft.

Moving parts XFlow can be used to simulate moving parts with forced or constrained behavior, such as a submarine propeller. It is possible to analyze the pressure and forces exerted by the flow on the blades, the fluid velocity distribution, the moment and propulsive force supplied by the propeller or the wake created downstream.

Soshing Dynamic loads across a tank structure as a result of the motion of free surface fluid confined inside the tank are an important safety issue. XFlow can be used to track the fluid motion, including splashing of single particles, and analyze the sloshing impact loads. It is possible to introduce any arbitrary prescribed movement e.g. from tabular data.

Waves The solver supports progressive waves boundary conditions by implementing linear and fifth order Stokes theory to simulate a wide range of sea conditions. A porous volume can be used to model the beach and study wave dissipation. XFlow is also able to simulate general 6-DOF motion (surge, sway, heave, pitch, roll and yaw) of a floating object.
