Appendage orientation - case study report

Appendage orientation is traditionally carried with use of model-tests. However due to the difference in boundary layer at model scale and full scale, it is very well possible that not the best orientation is found at model-scale. Leading to extra resistance and cavitation problems. This case study will demonstrate the use of full-scale CFD calculations for appendage orientation and compare the results with model scale experiments.
