Objectives

  • Increase knowledge on the important propeller/hull interaction effects, critical to the design of efficient propellers and Energy Saving Devices (ESDs), as well as hull design.
  • Develop a full set of industry recognised benchmark cases for ship and model scale validation of CFD computations.
  • Collect the aforementioned results in convenient and quickly accessible web-based format.
  • Increase confidence primarily in ship scale CFD and assess their performance compared to traditional model testing.
  • Improve understanding of the model tests correlation allowance coefficient Ca.
  • Prepare fully accessible data for further development of the ship digital twin concept.
