Abstract: In order to accurately predict the on-wave resistance and responses to hull motions of ships in actual sea conditions, the k-ε method of the RNG model is adopted on the basis of the unsteady RANS method. The twoformula turbulence model deals with the viscous flow, the VOF method captures the free...
