Abstract

This investigation first focuses on modelling the flow around cantilever plates in normal oscillation, providing key guidance for attaining sufficient accuracy for most engineering applications, in terms of turbulence modelling, mesh refinement and time step selection. The modelling approach is then applied to the hydrodynamics of a ship-like section fitted with vertical bilge keels, rolling at free surface. The results obtained from RANS are compared to available experimental data and predictions obtained from potential flow analysis. Viscous effects arising from the presence of the bilge keels are shown to influence more hydrodynamic coefficients than just roll fluid damping. Finally, empirical formulae commonly used to allow for the influence of viscous roll damping are compared to RANS predictions and experimental data.
