This paper describes progress in the development of a method to compute viscous flow with free surface around a ship hull. The method solves the steady RANS/FS problem by iteration, using the formulation proposed by Raven & Van Brummelen (1999). It is being developed to provide a more efficient alternative for the usual time-dependent solution approaches, in order to permit practical application on dense grids in ship design work.
