This paper surveys developments in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) applica-tions for maritime structures (ships, propellers, and offshore structures) over the past decade. Progress is significant in integrating the process chain, particularly more automated model generation. Increased hardware power and progress in various aspects of the flow solvers allow more sophisticated applications and wider scope of applications. Selected examples taken from industry and research applications show the increasing importance of CFD in earlier design stages.
