CFD for Ship Resistance

Listed in Alphabetical Order

CFDShip-Iowa

CFD for Ship Resistance | CFD for Ship Motions and Maneuvering | RANS-URANS | LES-DES | FDM

CFDShip-Iowa solves the incompressible Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes and continuity equations with a variety of turbulence models, and a single-phase level set method to accommodate free surface problems. Since it has been specifically developed for surface-ship and marine-propulsor flow problems, it has an array of ship hydrodynamic specific subroutines and post-processors.

FFB

CFD for Ship Resistance | RANS-URANS | LES-DES | FEM

The FrontFlow/blue (FFB) is a finite element method solver for incompressible turbulent flows by LES and RANS with second-order accuracy in terms both of time and space. Standard Smagorinsky model (SSM) and dynamic Smagorinsky model (DSM) are implemented for the SGS model, and SA model is implemented for RANS.

Crank-Nicolson method and fractional step (FS) method are implemented to solve the momentum equations and the pressure Poisson equation, respectively. FFB runs in massively parallel by the domain decomposition method.

CFD for Ship Resistance | Thin Ship Theory

Flotilla is a computer workbench that can be used for investigations into some aspects of ship hydrodynamics. Flotilla is not suitable for many classes of hulls. It cannot handle planing hulls or very stubby vessels like tugboats. However, it provides very acceptable predictions for hulls with L/B as low as 5 when the hull has a transom stern.

NFA

CFD for Ship Resistance | CFD for Ship Motions and Maneuvering | LES-DES | FVM

NFA (Numerical Flow Analysis) is a fortran code and solves the Navier-Stokes equations utilizing a Cartesian grid cut-cell formulation with a second-order accurate, volume-of-fluid (VOF) interface-capturing technique to model the unsteady flow of air and water around moving bodies.

Turbulence is modeled with an implicit subgrid-scale model that is built into the treatment of the convective terms in the momentum equations. A domain decomposition method is used to distribute portions of the solution domain over a large number of processors.
