This paper describes the calculations performed with the RANS solver PARNASSOS for the double-body flow around the KVLCC2 tanker. The aim of this study is twofold: assess the uncertainty of the predictions; demonstrate the quality of the predictions with two-equation eddy-viscosity models using empirical corrections for rotation and streamline curvature effects.
