Özet

The evaluation of the hydrodynamic performance of planing vessels has always been one of the most attractive study fields in the maritime agenda. Resistance and self-propulsion studies have been performed using experimental and numerical methods by researchers for a long time. As opposed to this, the seakeeping performance of planing hulls is assessed with 2D approximation methods, but limitedly, while the experimental campaign is not cost-effective for several reasons. With this motivation, pitch and heave transfer functions and accelerations were obtained for a monohedral hull and a warped hull using a state of art commercial Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) solver, in this study. Moreover, 2-DOF (degree of freedom) dynamic fluid-body interaction (DFBI) equations were solved in a coupled manner with an overset mesh algorithm, to find the instantaneous motion of the body. After verification, obtained numerical results at three different Froude numbers and a sufficiently large wave frequency range were compared with the experiments. The results showed that the employed RANS method offers a very accurate prediction of vertical motions and accelerations for planing hulls.
