This book explores computational fluid dynamics applied to ship hydrodynamics and provides guidelines for the future developments
in the field based on the Tokyo 2015 Workshop. It presents ship hull test cases, experimental data and submitted computational
methods, conditions, grids and results. Analysis is made of errors for global (resistance, sinkage, trim and self-propulsion)
and local flow (wave elevations, mean velocities and turbulence) variables, including standard deviations for global variables.
The effects of grid size and turbulence models are evaluated for both global and local flow variables. Detailed analysis is
made of turbulence modeling capabilities for capturing local flow physics. Errors and standard deviations are also assessed
for added resistance (captive test cases) and course keeping/speed loss (free running test cases) in head and oblique waves.
All submissions are used to evaluate the error and uncertainty by means of a systematic verification and validation (V&V)
study along with statistical investigations.
