Abstract

VTT has numerically investigated the hydrodynamic performance of a Compact Azipod unit at full and model scale at the design operation point. VTT used RANSE (Reynolds-Averaged-Navier-Stokes Equation) solver FINFLO in the calculations. Scale effects are shown for the forces on different components of the unit. Pressure distributions and streamlines are presented to illustrate regions of 3D separation on the strut and pod.
