Investigations for CFD Based Form Factor Methods
Paper in proceeding, 2019

In this study, the form factor concept has been investigated by analyzing the results obtained from
the simulations performed on KVLCC2 and KCS hulls. Grid dependence studies, sensitivity analysis of
loading conditions and varying grid setups have been performed with SHIPFLOW code. Extrapolation
of viscous resistance to full scale has been performed with ITTC57 line and numerical friction lines.
