    Abstract: Performance of ship resistance and other propulsion characteristics greatly depend on ships’ hull form. However, design considerations based on range of hull modifications can be practically limited by material and time resources, hence the need for computational optimization techniques based on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). In this paper, hu... Show More
