Abstract

This paper applies Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) method to study propulsion performance in head and oblique waves. Finite volume method (FVM) is employed to discretize the governing equations and SST k-ω model is used for modeling the turbulent flow. The free surface is solved by volume of fluid (VOF) method. Sliding mesh technique is used to enable rotation of propeller. Propeller open water curves are determined by propeller open water simulations. Calm water resistance and wave added resistances are obtained from towing computations without propeller. Self-propulsion simulations in calm water and waves with varying loads are performed to obtain self-propulsion point and thrust identify method is use to predict propulsive factors. Regular head waves with wavelengths varying from 0.6 to 1.4 times the length of ship and oblique waves with incident directions varying from 0° to 360° are considered. The influence of waves on propulsive factors, including thrust deduction and wake fraction, open water, relative rotative, hull and propulsive efficiencies are discussed.
