In opinion of present authors the CFD is mature enough to determine with confidence the hydrodynamic characteristics necessary to simulate ship manoeuvres. In this paper the authors present the attempt to determine the hull hydrodynamic forces using the results of CFD computations of ship flow. Results show qualitative agreement with reference data and reveal shortcomings due to simplifying assumptions applied in CFD computations.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Manoeuvring, Simulation of Ship Maneuvering, Equations of Ship's Movement, Hydrodynamic Forces, CFD Computations, Hydrodynamic Characteristics, Ship's Motion, Mathematical Model} }
