The world has enormous quantities of natural gas but much of it is located in areas far from where the gas is needed. As natural gas becomes an increasingly important energy source a large fleet is needed to transport it in liquefied form, hence the development of specially-designed LNG carriers. Report outlines the importance of CFD tools in LNG carrier design.
