SubjectCFD; planing hull
AbstractModel experiments were used to evaluate CFD simulations of a high-speed planning vessel. Fluent (v5.3) was used to simulate the flow around a planing vessel at steady speed through calm water using 3D unstructured hybrid grids with hanging node refinement. Force and moment data from the simulations were used in an iterative scheme to determine the dynamic equilibrium position of the model at selected speeds. The numerical results are compared with experimental data from model tests. The strengths and weaknesses of the numerical approach are discussed.
