DATE : 1981 PHOENICS Version :

- Three-Dimensional Steady flow
- Curvilinear (BFC) computational grid

- Solution domain is a cylindrical quadrant in which the hull half-section occupies the region near the axis
- The south boundary represents the hull surface and the east boundary the waterline
- The north cylindrical boundary has a constant pressure specification to simulate approximately an infinite domain by allowing mass and axial momentum to cross it
- Inlet plane is at midships and the outlet plane is placed beyond the stern
Pictures are as follows :

1. Geometrical Configuration 2. Velocity vectors 3. Pressure distribution contours
