Abstract
The literature has been reviewed to identify numerical schemes suitable for solving the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations describing the following incompressible flow: (i) flow over bare hulls of conventional surface ships, submarines, and advanced marine vehicles; (ii) flow through propellers in open water conditions, and (iii) flow interactions between hull boundary layers, free surfaces, propellers, appendages, and control surfaces. While reviewing schemes, emphasis has been placed on grid generation, algorithm design and efficiency, and turbulence modelling. Two main classes of solvers have been reported in the literature: the first is based on Chen and Patel's extension of Patankar's SIMPLER algorithm, and uses the k-epsilon turbulence model, while the second is based on Chorin's pseudocompressibility approach, and uses the Baldwin-Lomax turbulence model. Both schemes use body-fitted coordinates, typically on elliptically generated grids.
