An ultra large size and high speed LNGC according to demands in rapid expansion of LNG market has been developed at Samsung Heavy Industries Company. For economic operation, a much higher block coefficient than that of LNGCs which have been built worldwide was considered. To overcome hydrodynamic difficulties due to the high block coefficient and high speed, a series of optimizations of hull form and propeller by CFD analysis and model tests were performed. This paper describes the optimization of the next generation LNGC from the hydrodynamic point of view.
