Comparative Study on Added Resistance and Seakeeping Performance of X-Bow and Wave-Piercing Monohull in Regular Head Waves

Chen, S., Zou, B., Han, C. & Yan, S. ORCID: 0000-0001-8968-6616 (2022). Comparative Study on Added Resistance and Seakeeping Performance of X-Bow and Wave-Piercing Monohull in Regular Head Waves. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering, 10(6), 813. doi: 10.3390/jmse10060813

Abstract

Bow shape has been recognized as an important factor influencing the seakeeping performance and added resistance of ships. This paper presents a numerical comparative study on added resistance and seakeeping of model ships with ‘X-bow’ and a wave-piercing monohull in regular head waves using a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software. Different wave heights, wavelengths and forward speeds are considered in the systematic investigation in order to characterize the added resistance and wave-induced motions, and to explore the local wave patterns. The results show a considerably different hydrodynamic characteristic by different bow shapes.
