SIMULATION OF NONLINEAR SHIP FLOWS BY DENSITY-FUNCTION METHOD

A new computational method that can cope with three dimensional breaking waves in the framework of curvilinear body- fitted coordinate system has been developed. The free-surface treatment in this study is based on the marker-density technique developed in the TUMMAC-VIII method, and the algorithm of solving the discretized N-S equation is that of the WISDAM-V method. By simulations with three hull forms, it is demonstrated that this new method can simulate three dimensional breaking waves around a body of arbitrary shape with a certain degree of accuracy.
