Nowdays, the CFD method has been become a famous approach that use to solve the problem involved the
ship hydrodynamic problems. The objective of this master thesis is attempting to simulate a single screw stern
ship sailing in the calm water with several different ship speed with the help of CFD program Star CCM+.
Simulations contain both model scale situations and full scale situations. By analysis the results of the ship
resistance coefficient and wake field of both cases, we figure out that the resistance and wake differences
between model scale ship and full scale ship and what caused the scale effect between the real full scale ship
and the model scale ship.
Master thesis mainly consist of four parts: background and methods, which is use to define the basic theoretical
foundation of this thesis; Case study part introduces the model, mesh and physical parameters setting process
in the CFD computer program: Star CCM+; Results part shows the results from simulations we get and
Discussion part discuss the questions we encounter during the simulation. The entire simulation process in this
thesis contains five phases: 1. Setup simulated models and meshes; 2. Setup physical parameters; 3.
Verification of results; 4. Simulate all the test cases; 5. Analyze the results.
