Application of SHIPFLOW MOTION to hull optimization

Nowadays most of the ship hulls are optimized in calm water. However, reducing added resistance in waves can be the key to the optimum performance of a ship. In the second article we show a comparison of two bow types for a typical VLCC hull form using CFD. Calculations have been performed with MOTIONS module of SHIPFLOW 6.1

The article is called Performance in waves – part 2 and can be found in under the menu Cases.
