Compute your own foils... and design a faster boat !

Sofia
and its solution Sofia Remote

SOFIA
Since 2014, SOFIA is your solution for optimizing lifting deformable appendages calculations in fluid structure interaction.
The software allows you to optimize the shape and the structure design of your appendage for navigation performance purpose.
Developed as part of the 34th and 35th America's Cup
Sofia Remote
The SAAS solution of SOFIA. Thanks to a simple internet connection (even in 3G), SOFIA remote allows you to take advantage of the SOFIA calculation solution everywhere!
A fully automated and secure solution (TLS encryption) to process your data and calculations.
Access everywhere and on all your desktop devices to your SOFIA project, in all confidentiality and security.

Features

Foil design and calculation using FSI process
Optimization of appendage design and structure
Help to tune appendage
Simulate the real performance of foil in navigation

Success stories

AN BERNARD
STRUCTURE ENGINEER
There was a challenge of mass and stiffness on the foil of the AC50 Groupama Team France. The scripted mode of Sofia allowed me to calculate 7500 structures of foils in 12h and to obtain the best foil for the performance of the boat!
Gsea Design engineer for 5 years
REMY BALZE
DOCTOR IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
We implemented in Sofia the Vortex Lattice Method for the computation of the fluid loading just before the calculation of the foils of MACIF 100. These were the first foils successfully designed with this hydrodynamic loading calculation method.
Gsea Design R&D Manager since 2007
MAEL DEVOLDERE
SENIOR ENGINEER
It was a real challenge for me to design foils for IMOCA 60’s. Sofia allowed me to realize an optimized design of the PRB foil and the boat has won several races since!
Gsea Design engineer from 2013 to 2019, currently engineer in Banque Populaire team
