###### Sažetak

In this paper, numerical simulation of the viscous flow around a tanker model was carried out utilizing software package STAR-CCM+. A mathematical model based on Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations, k-ε turbulence model and Volume of Fluid method for describing the motion of two-phase media are given. Necessary boundary conditions for the mathematical model and the method of discretization are described as well. The influence of the grid density on the numerical results for the total resistance of tanker model was investigated using three different grid densities. Two different types of k-ε turbulence model are implemented and the deviations in numerical results are highlighted. Results for total resistance of tanker model, obtained by numerical simulations, were validated against experimental results. Experiments were performed in the towing tank of Brodarski Institut in Zagreb for wide range of Froude numbers. It has been shown that for all three grid densities and both types of k-ε turbulence model satisfactory agreement with experimental results can be achieved for whole range of Froude numbers. The scale effects are investigated by Computational Fluid Dynamics study for the same tanker model in three different scales. Numerically calculated scale effects on the wave resistance are reviewed.
