Numerical investigation on ship energy efficiency by Monte Carlo simulation

In this article, the authors present a procedure to predict the energy efficiency operational indicator by Monte Carlo simulations, estimating the total ship fuel consumption as a function of displacement and speed considered as random variables. To characterize the probability density function of displacement and speed, a complete series of operating data concerning 2 years of navigation, of a RoPax engaged in a commercial trade in the Mediterranean Sea, were collected and used.
