A customer approached us with a need for marine propulsion concept innovation services.
For this project, our engineers conducted concept innovation and invention ideation with our customer. Our team worked diligently to create a scaled, functioning prototype. Initially, the model didn’t work so an in-depth CFD analysis was performed to optimize the function of the propulsion system.
Our CFD analysis identified potential areas of weakness within the design. We used high-speed underwater photography to test the validity of our hypotheses, ultimately pinpointing exactly what needed modifications. The end result is a revolutionary, safe and innovative system that will bring increased life cycle value and environmental performance to their customers.
