Non-linear free-surface phenomena, such as extreme waves and violent sloshing, and their impact on the dynamics response of the containing vessels have long been subjects that could only be studied with experimental methods. Nowadays, computational CFD tools can make a significant contribution to these flow problems. The paper starts with a...

In recent years wind-assisted propulsion for commercial ships has gained an increasing interest as valuable alternative to reduce fuel pollutant emissions. However, the development of feasible and commercially viable wind propulsion systems to partially (or fully) propel a ship is nowadays hindered by the difficulties of modelling the...

Air lubrication techniques are very promising in reducing ship drag. It has been demonstrated that air cavity applications can realise propulsive power reduction percentages of 10-20% due to the reduction of the frictional resistance [1, 2]. However, a complete understanding of the two-phase flow physics involved with air cavity flows is still...

The particle image velocimetry (PIV) technique has become a reliable method for capturing the velocity field and its derivatives, even in complex flows and is now also widely used for validation of numerical codes. As the imaging system is sensitive to vibrations, the application in environments such as towing tanks makes it a challenging task....

A bow wave breaking is one of the most prominent factors to be considered regarding the nonlinearity of added resistance for a ship. Considering the stability of the bow wave breaking, which is mostly influenced by the ship speed and the waterline entrance angle, can enhance understanding of the nonlinearity. Understanding of the nonlinearity...

Wind energy as an auxiliary form of propulsion for commercial ships has again become of great interest as a possible response to volatile fuel prices and increasingly stringent environmental regulations. A well-founded performance prediction tool is a key prerequisite for the further development of this promising technology, and with the support...
