CFD Based Hull Hydrodynamic Forces for Simulation of Ship Manoeuvres
1 Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Wrocław, Poland
ABSTRACT: There have been developed numerous mathematical models describing the motion of a ship. 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.
