The bow flow of the Series 60 CB 0. 6 ship model is reinvestigated using both experiments and CFD. More detailed bow-flow data is obtained by taking measurements of the wave elevation with a point gauge very near the bow. In the CFD, the bow flow is resolved in more detail by using the real bow geometry instead of the simplified vertical zero-thickness bow used in previous studies, which requires a much finer grid in the bow region. The experiments and CFD are briefly described; results are presented; and discussions are made concerning comparisons of the new and old CFD solutions with the extended data regarding the wave profile and elevation at the bow, the thin film and beads (i.e. attached spray sheet and bow vortices), and the stagnation effects. Finally some concluding remarks are made.
