MV Regal model for towing tank tests

No doubt, MV Regal is a famous vessel as she is the only (at the moment) open validation case for Ship scale CFD. A lot of people have seen her as a digital model, some people have seen her in real life at the trials, but how many of you have seen her in model scale for towing tank tests? Sintef Ocean is building the model to replicate unique sea trials performed in September 2020. We will have the full set of data for the trial conditions – Trials/Model tests/CFD to better understand ship efficiency challenges. Stay tuned!
