On the importance of antifouling coatings regarding ship resistance and powering

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This paper aims to introduce one of the latest investigations on development of marine antifouling coatings and
also to demonstrate the importance of the type of antifouling coatings on fouling accumulation and ship
resistance/powering. First, marine biofouling and fouling prevention methods are reviewed. A recent research
study (EU FP7 FOUL-X-SPEL Project) concerning a novel and environmentally friendly antifouling coating is
presented and discussed. Next, a case study is carried out to assess the effect of fouling on ship resistance and
powering. A vessel is selected and the roughness on the hull surface induced by different level of fouling is
considered. The increase in frictional resistance and effective power is evaluated for each particular case by using
boundary layer similarity law analysis and experimental data. The results emphasise that the type of antifouling
coatings has a great importance on the amount of fouling accumulation, hence on ship performance especially in
low speeds
