Using a PANS Simulation Approach for the Transient Flow around the Japan Bulk Carrier
Other conference contribution, 2018

In this study, a PANS, Partially averaged Navier-Stokes, modelling approach developed based on the k − ω turbulence model has been applied to the flow around the Japan Bulk Carrier. Three different meshes has been employed for a fixed physical resolution for the PANS modelling. The results are encouraging, with small scale flow dynamics being allowed to develop on reasonably small mesh sizes, but more studies are required before reliable predictive simulations can be performed.
