Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is the common denominator of various kinds of numerical flow simulations, with ship hull form optimisation the most developed application. Recently, the viscous flow solver PARNASSOS, has been validated for flow alignment of appendages, notably bilge keels, struts, scallops and the like. A powerful numerical application has been added to MARIN's toolbox for ship design support. Report explains.
