Events 2012

8 - 9 June 2011 SEAGITAL workshop about Fishing Vessels Project HALIEUKITE

K-Epsilon is the project leader for HALIEU KITE: Study the use of a Kite (wing curve or inflatable chamber of area) as a means of propulsion for fishing vessels. The project goal is to develop simulation tools for aero elastic modeling of a sail in motion in order to quantify the propulsive force that generates and quantify the gains in fuel it is able to provide boats fishing.

June 2011 BUREAU MAURIC bought FINE/Marine

The aim was always to liaise closely with Bureau Mauric throughout an assignement - from consulting services until a full integration of the software FINE/Marine for in house use.

21 - 24 September 2011 MONACO YACHT SHOW

K-EPSILON will lauch its latest solution dedicated to Motor yacht  called  "Green Yacht".

The concept "Green Yacht" is based on computation of  ship's drag in order to quantitfy the impact of the refit. :

-  save gas comssuption up to 15%

- higher confort

- noise and vibration reduction

Using CFD for hull optimization can improve the flow around the hull by reducing the wave making and

consequetently lowering the required power.

15 - 17 November 2011 METS SHOW - Amsterdam

K-EPSILON will attend the show to present her kwow-how in hydro-aerodynamic.

We cooperate with leadind ship designers, consulting naval architects, and shipyards all over the world.

May 01, 2010 I CIMER, Toulon, France: The Vessel of the Future

Following the Sea Interministerial Committee (CIMER) held in December 2009, the competent committees have validated The Vessel of the Future as the heart of the Grenelle of the Sea.  An ad hoc group in which K-Epsilon is committed, dedicated to the vessel of the future, has been set up, with a Research Orientation and Innovation similar to what exists in the aeronautic field. Topics suggested are energy savings, liquid, solid and gaseous discharge treatment as well as security.

April 10, 2010 I Valencia, Spain: Meet up with Jason Ker

Yann Roux met Jason Ker in Valencia to discuss about the recent developments of K-Epsilon:  Automatic computation (the hydro and aero results directly from the CAO file), unsteady FSI and automatic form design optimization.

May 18, 2009 I Paris, France: Strategic Partner with BULBE Project – Fisheries Sector

K-Epsilon is the main partner of the architect Jean & Fresca for the BULBE project: Tool parametric numerical simulation to optimize the bow bulbs. The project BULB campaign is aimed at reducing resistance to advancing free surface, an area that has not been researched so far in the fisheries sector, the stability criteria and traction propeller being dominant to increase fishing capacity.
