Introduction, conclusions and recommendations
Kapitel i bok, 2021

The Tokyo 2015 Workshop on CFD in Hydrodynamics was the seventh in a series started in 1980. The purpose of the Workshops is to regularly assess the state of the art in Numerical Hydrodynamics and to provide guidelines for further developments in the area. The 2015 Workshop offered 16 test cases for three ship hulls. A total of 36 participating groups of CFD specialists submitted their computed results during the fall of 2015. The results were compiled by the organizers and discussed at a meeting in Tokyo in December 2015. In this chapter the background and development of the Workshops since the start are presented. The three hulls used in the 2015 Workshop are introduced and the computations requested from the participants are specified. Based on a questionnaire sent to all participants the details of their CFD methods are listed, and finally the general conclusions from each chapter and recommendations for future Workshops are presented. The detailed results of the computations are discussed in subsequent Chapters.
