ReFRESCO

ReFRESCO is a viscous-flow CFD code that solves multiphase unsteady incompressible flows using the RANS equations. ReFRESCO is an acronym for Reliable&Fast Rans Equations (solver for) Ships, Cavitation (and) Offshore. ReFRESCO resembles in several regards a general commercial CFD code, but it is optimized, verified and validated exclusively for maritime applications. ReFRESCO is currently being actively developed, verified and validated at MARIN (in the Netherlands) in collaboration with IST (in Portugal), USP-TPN (University of Sao Paulo, Brasil), TUDelft (Technical University of Delft, the Netherlands), UoS (University of Southampton, UK), and recently at UTwente (Technical University of Twente, the Netherlands) and Chalmers (Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden)
