[Objectives] In the design stage of a luxury cruise ship, in order to save costs, it is necessary to use the CFD method to predict the hydrodynamic performance of the cruise ship under design.
[Methods] The research object of this paper is a large luxury cruise ship. The self-developed ship hydrodynamics CFD solver naoe-FOAM-SJTU is used to simulate the seakeeping of luxury cruise ships under the model scale. The seakeeping simulation adopts the speed entrance input wave-making method in the wave-making method, and predicts and summarizes the cruise ship movement in 4-6, 8 sea conditions and different wave direction.
[Results] In terms of seakeeping, the evaluation found that the cruise ship model currently designed meets the requirements of cruise comfort under sea conditions 4-6 ;and meets the safety requirements of cruise ships under sea conditions 8. [Conclusions] The research shows that the naoe-FOAM-SJTU solver can be applied to the performance prediction of the seakeeping of luxury cruise ships and provide data support for the initial design of luxury cruise ships.
