SMM 2024

Leading International Maritime Trade Fair

SMM 2024

Hall B6 Booth 327 (joint Fraunhofer-Waterborne booth)

SMM (Shipbuilding, Machinery and Marine Technology) 2024 is the world's leading trade fair for the maritime industry. The event provides a platform for companies, research institutions and experts from all over the world to present and discuss the latest innovations and technologies in the maritime sector.

At the trade fair, our colleagues from the department »Transport Processes« will be presenting our simulation software MESHFREE at the joint Fraunhofer-Waterborne booth. 

Simulations and digital twins are indispensable for many companies. This is because conventional software often fails to map highly dynamic processes satisfactorily. With the MESHFREE tool, we have developed a solution that works without a rigid computing grid. MESHFREE simulations cover a wide range of processes and save time and costs – from water management to avalanches and foam formation. With a focus on maritime applications, MESHFREE is particularly suitable for the simulation of moving ships and their interaction with waves, tank sloshing, spray cleaning, flooding or floating bridges for disaster control.
