Reenactment of a bollard pull test for a double propeller tugboat using computational fluid dynamics
Keywords:Bollard pull test, tugboat, power, simulation, modelling, computational fluid dynamics
Use of CFD simulations is an affordable and trustworthy way of determining a vessel’s capacity before its construction. This study focuses in simulating a bollard pull of a specific tugboat and comparing the results with those of the real test to which it was subjected after construction. In compliance with the regulations of the classification societies regarding these types of tests, simulations will be carried out to study the bollard pull tests of a double propeller two boat. The results showed that the mathematical model is suitable for a numerical calculation of the bollard pull tests.
