Abstract

This paper aims to demonstrate the enhanced performance of a displacement-type catamaran wind farm support vessel through using hydrofoil technology. Newcastle University's multipurpose research vessel, 'The Princess Royal', is used due to its ideal size and mission profile. Readily available scale model data for the vessel is used for the validation of the calm water resistance performance predicted by Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations based on the Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations and their solution using Dynamic Body Fluid Interaction (DFBI) solvers. The validated simulations are then updated with the designed hydrofoils to confirm the predicted power savings. Finally, established CFD simulations are used for the simulation of National Physics Laboratory (NPL) hull form and a local leisure ship Taurus. The results proven the potential power savings with the use of appropriate hydrofoil technology.
