ON THE NUMERICAL SOLUTION OF THE TOTAL SHIP RESISTANCE PROBLEM UNDER A PREDETERMINED FREE SURFACE

The free surface around a ship model moving at constant speed was determined experimentally. The resistance components of the model were computed numerically by solving the Reynolds equations beneath the predetermined free surface. The calculations were made using the finite volume approach and the partially parabolic procedure. The standard k-epsilon turbulence model was used for the Reynolds stresses. Calculated and measured values for the total resistance have been compared and the applicability of the method is discussed.
