VENTuRE journal paper: CFD analysis of the effect of heterogeneous hull roughness on ship resistance – Ocean Engineering

Check out our latest VENTuRE journal publication. ABSTRACT: Hull roughness significantly increases ship resistance, power, and fuel consumption. Although it is typically spatially heterogeneous, little research has dealt with heterogeneously distributed roughness on ship hulls. Therefore, this study investigates the heterogeneous hull roughness effect on ship resistance using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). A series of CFD simulations were conducted…
