December 2005 saw the successful conclusion of the three-year European Full-scale FlOw Research and Technology (EFFORT) project, a 5th Framework EU project initiated and coordinated by MARIN. Principal objective was to validate CFD predictions of viscous flow and wake field of ships by comparison with experimental data for full-scale. Such data being scarce,new measurements of wake fields of two ships at full scale have been done.
