AbstractThe paper presents an overview and validation of a Navier-Stokes solver included in Flow-3D (from Flow Science Inc.) for the computation of the total resustance and flow characteristics of and advancing floating hull in otherwise calm real fluid. The choice of a Wigley hull in fixed conditions for a range of Froude Number allos for direct validation of results with experimental data obtained in the literature.
