Yacht Research Unit Kiel
Computational Fluid Mechanics and Experimental Flow Investigation for Yacht Designers, Sailmakers and Sail Sport Campaigns
Yacht Research Unit Kiel is a research group of the Univ. Appl. Sciences Kiel, organized under the Hood of the university's R&D Center. YRU-Kiel provides flow investigation and optimization services for the sail sports community.
YRU-Kiel carries out CFD-based aero- and hydrodynamic analysis with subsequent form optimization. In addition YRU-Kiel operates a Twisted-Flow-Windtunnel to be used within the sail design process of sailmakers as well as yacht designers, and a hot water open water circulation tank for tank testing of small models.
