Yacht Research Unit Kiel - YRU-Kiel analyses IMOCA 60 for VPLP Yacht Design

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.


YRU-Kiel analyses IMOCA 60 for VPLP Yacht Design

Kiel, August 2013: In a collaborative effort YRU-Kiel and VPLP Yacht Design investigated the new generation of IMOCA 60 to participate in the "Vendee Globe" round the world race starting 2016.

The revised rules for the next edition of the race allow two options of predefined rigs. In order to assess pros and cons of wing-mast rigs versus classical rigs an intensive wind tunnel session has been conducted at YRU-Kiel's twisted flow wind tunnel. On top CFD-investigations have been carried out.

IMOCA in windtunnel
Simon Watin, performance specialist at VPLP: « With the help of the YRUK we have the opportunity to realize a thorough assessment campaign on IMOCA rigs, to prepare for the next edition of the Vendee Globe. With the facilities available we can perform both numerical and experimental studies in order to have a complete picture of the subject “
