NUMERICAL STUDY ON DPS THRUSTER-HULL INTERACTION WITH DIFFERENT AXIS TILTING ANGLE Jin, D.-H.; Lee, S.-W.;
In this study, effects of thurster axis tilting angle on the thruster-hull interaction and propulsion performance in a dynamic positioning system of offshore plant are numerically investigated. Straight and 7-degree tilted downward thruster models as a form of ducted propeller are considered. For numerical simulations, Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes equations with SST turbulence model are solved by using STAR-CCM+. Results show that thruster-hull interaction is reduced in 7-degree tilted thruster model with lower vortex strength between thruster and hull bottom, although the propulsion performance does not have noticeable difference in a bollard condition.
