Research on Mesh Generation Effecting Resistance Calculation
In order to give consistent and agreeable results in resistance and other hydrodynamic performance with some of the viscous Computational Fluid Dynamics methods which appear to have difficulties when applied to hulls, the investigation of the influential factors like mesh generation which affect the calculation results are taken by the simulation of different cases in the present paper. Through calculation and analysis, specifically with the CFD code FLUENT, an alternative set of computation parameters of mesh generation for engineering application is suggested. The application of the suggestion to the hull researched in this paper result in better agreements with corresponding model tests.
