A METHOD OF PREDICTING THREE-DIMENSIONAL TURBULENT FLOWS AROUND SHIPS' HULLS
The partial-differential equations governing the flow under consideration are solved by the finite-difference method of Pratap and Spalding for three-dimensional, partially-parabolic flows. Turbulence is accounted for via a two-equation model of turbulence developed by Harlow and Nakayama and modelled by Launder and Spalding. Solutions are presented for flow around the rear part of a ship's hull which demonstrate the potential of the present method. Order from NSFI as No. 17423.
