In order to clarify the existence and amount of a required propulsion power reduction possible with the efficient use of the Ballast-Free Ship concept on a Seaway-size bulk carrier, additional experimental and computational hydrodynamics studies were undertaken during the past year. Experimental studies performed in the University of Michigan Marine Hydrodynamics Laboratory (MHL) are described. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) investigations performed using Star-CCMþ at both model and full scale are also presented.
