A Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes computational fluid dynamics (RANS-CFD) package will be one of the primary tools used during the development of a performance prediction program for Wind-Assisted commercial ships. The modelling challenge presented by large separated flow structures in the wake of the sailing ship points to a conscientious...

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...

The CFD simulation tool ComFLOW is extended to investigate the characteristics of wave motions in the presence of steady uniform currents. Initially, the inflow boundary is the superposition of waves and current. Effect of the latter on the former is resolved by solving Navier-Stokes equations within the domain as a next step. A Generating and...
