The application of new Rankine Source methods to quantify the hydrodynamic characteristics of ships also shapes the perception of added resistance and ways to develop fuel efficient hull forms. Based on a currently ongoing validation effort, the paper describes the present understanding of the contributions to added resistance, the factors governing the validity of the above method and the effects of particular choices in ship design.
