CFD, potential flow, and system-based simulations of course keeping in calm water and seakeeping in regular waves for 5415m
In this paper, CFD and potential flow calculations for the 5415M hullform for roll decay, forced motion and regular waves are presented. The paper shows that CFD is a useful tool when studying the seakeeping behaviour of ships.
