air under hull
i am a new NUMECA user. in a simulation of a high speed boat, it look like air going under the hull. what is the influences parameters to limite this effect.
thank you by advance for answers LL

sorry for disturbing,
the answer is in the documentation...
increase orthogonality, longer acceleration, CiStreakCorrection_YES; uwCiCorrection_YES
better question will be for a next time!!!

my actual problem is that coeficents, make the solution unstable... and so the results non available...
is there another solutions???
thank you for answering

Hi, been trying NUMECA for a while for high speed boat simulation also.
As you said I did notice that the uwCiCorrection_YES makes the solution more unstable for me. The CiStreakCorrection_Yes is better though..

Btw, are you running the full unsteady or the quasi-static analysis?
What is your Fn (by wetted length) that you are simulating?
What is the y+ of your hull? If it is too small, try to increase it, I suspect the air entrapment is due to AR of the cells near the interface is too big and/or the mesh is not refined enough..
Increasing orthogonality / refining the mesh helps but CPU cost will increase a lot!

Anyone has a suggestion?

i found a solution, you must adjust the uwCorretionCoef_ in the line just under uwCiCorrection_YES!
for my case 0.3 was not enough but with 0.8 i had some good results. look at the pressure repartition on hull with this coef, it much better!
