Hydrodynamics is the branch of physics that describes the forces and motions of fluids

MMC specializes in hydrodynamics, which means that we can help you to predict the forces on your small boat, ship or static marine structure.

Worried about wave forces? Using our analysis tools including AQWA and CFX from ANSYS, we can tell you exactly what to expect so that you can design your marine vessel or structure to handle the worst storm that you can expect. You can use our results to design and build the least expensive structure that will still withstand the strongest expected sea conditions.

 

"Oscillating Water Column" wave energy converter simulated by MMC. This device is used to convert internal pressures generated from heave motions into electricity.

 

"Oyster" wave energy converter simulated by MMC.  This submerged device is used to convert the surge velocity present in ocean waves to electricty.

 

 

"McCabe pump" wave energy converter simulated by MMC.  This device is used to convert the heave velocity at the surface to electricity.
