Abstract

The increasing efficiency and reliability associated with application of CFD codes in different ship hydrodynamic domains is discussed. Uncertainty analysis as the standard technique for experimental accuracy assessment and CFD validation is advocated. Application of CFD to bring the model-to-ship scaling techniques from the present empirical methods to a more theoretical basis is illustrated. Integration of CFD codes into the hydrodynamic design leading to a complete revolution in the ship design strategy by introduction of a multicriterial decision-making process, is summarized. Introduction During the last century, entering into operation of new ship concepts put a grow- ing pressure in the introduction
