This paper describes computations of the flow around the KRISO Container Ship (KCS) with focus on wave pattern predictions. A steady state RANS code with a volume-of-fluid (VOF) free surface capturing method is used. The calculations are performed with block structured grids with H-O topology and around 4 million cells. The results obtained show a satisfactory correlation with the measurements.
