This publication by The Royal Institute of Naval Architects contains all materials of the Marine CFD - The Fourth International Conference of Marine Hydrodynamics held in 2005. It includes very interesting articles and researches by the world famous professionals. Among the topics addressed by the participants of the event there were dynamic mesh simulations of unsteady hydrodynamics of the ship, numerical simulation of yaw effect and free surface wave induced separation, scale effect influence on the propeller's hydrodynamic characteristics, prediction of the torque and thrust performance, various considerations on deviation in prediction of the torque, practical boundary element code development for hydrodynamic analysis, free-surface elevation around a moored vessel etc. We all know that hydrodynamic aspects play a critical role in the quality of a vessel. The powering performance and hull resistance are considered dominant criteria for the ship hull form design. Moreover, vibration and noise that may seriously affect the passenger and crew comfort, often have the hydrodynamic origins and may be caused by stemming resulting from the operation of the propeller.
