Abstract
This paper presents viscous-flow calculations conducted on the Series 60 hull form sailing at a drift angle. In order to examine the reliability of the predicted flow fields and integrated quantities derived from the solution, the discretisation error in the result is studied based on grid refinement. To validate the results, detailed comparisons are made between model measurements conducted at IIHR and simulations of the viscous flow around the model.
