Shallow water effects change the flow around a ship significantly which can affect the optimum design of the hull. This paper describes a study into the optimization of the aft ship region for various water depths. The research focuses on variations of the following parameters of a hull form: The athwart ship’s propeller location, the tunnel top...

In order to reach the required manoeuvrability, inland vessels often use twin rudders, but the interaction effects are poorly understood. To achieve a proper configuration, this paper applies 2D RANS simulations to analyse the interaction effects on the twin-rudder hydrodynamics. Various twin-rudder configurations with different profiles and...

Effects of a hull form variation and shallow water on a 110-meter inland ship are presented as preliminary results of the Top Ships project, which is initiated in order to improve inland ship design tools and design guidelines.
