This thesis is about a numerical method for the simulation of the flow around a ship, moving steadily on a straight course in still water, the focus being on the prediction of the water motion near the ship's aft end. The purpose is a simulation model that can fruitfully be used in the design process (as far as concerned with the hydrodynamic optimization of the hull shape and its propeller), and in the interpretation of model test results.
