WATERJET HULL INTERACTION
Conference contribution, 2010
The main objective of this work is to render the parameters involved in the watejet-hull interaction and finally define the weight of each of these parameters on the thrust deduction fraction. This would help to know how to control the thrust deduction fraction and try to keep this factor below zero to gain more efficiency for the hull and waterjet assembly. Aiming this goal, current paper is going to discuss some strategies for modeling waterjet-hull interaction starting with very simplified assumptions. The applied solver in this work is a potential code including a linear/none-linear free surface model which is capable of handling 6DoF simulation for calculating sinkage of a hull and its’ trim angle.
