Potential flow methods are a very powerful tool for optimising, for example forebodys of ships. The power lies in the accuracy in ranking design modifications in combination with the short computation time. The short computation time makes it possible to try many different variants or to set up a parametric optimisation that will finish within reasonable time.

Combining the potential flow method in XPAN with frictional resistance from the thin boundary layer method in XBOUND will include the viscous effects.

Detailed predictions of the wake are required for design of propellers and for looking at the interaction with appendages. This calls for an advanced viscous flow method. SHIPFLOW uses an unconventional technique, which combines a very stable numerical scheme with other advanced features, such as a turbulence model especially developed for ship stern flow and a novel gridding technique. The viscous flow RANS solver, XCHAP can be run either as a double model solution or with a prescribes free surface from XPAN. The Volume of Fluid RANS solver, XVOF, is used where there are viscous effects on the free surface. Depending on the type of ship, speed and what effects are studied the user can choose which modules to use.

To enhance the stability of the solution the differential equations are discretized considering the magnitude and direction of the flow of information and non-physical fluctuations in the solution are suppressed. Full scale computations using this technique can be made without problems. The default turbulence model is of the algebraic stress type (EASM), and has proven to be especially accurate for stern flow predictions.

SHIPFLOWs XCHAP module is prepared for use on multi-core machines and clusters by using both threading and MPI. Using MPI on a cluster of machines will greatly speed up computations and is especially useful for large cases like, for example, self propulsion, VOF etc.

SHIPFLOWS XPAN module is prepared for use on multi-core machines by using threading.
