The paper describes advances in simulation technology for marine applications that have been achieved over the past 10 years. This includes handling of complex geometries, modeling of free-surface effects and cavitation, coupled simulation of flow and motion of floating bodies, and consideration of fluid-structure interaction. Examples from industry are used to explain the benefits obtained using modern simulation methods.
