Simulation of Flow Around KCS-Hull

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The paper describes results of computations of resistance, trim and sinkage for the KRISO Container Ship (KCS) at different Froude numbers in calm water. Unstructured trimmed grids with local refinement in zones of interest have been used to obtain maximum accuracy at low cell count. The solution method is of finite-volume type and uses mostly approximations of second order. Free surface is modeled using Volume-of-Fluid approach and a high-resolution interface-capturing scheme. It is demonstrated that acceptable accuracy can be achieved with grids containing around half a million cells for half of the geometry.
