Efficiency improvement of a viscous flow solver used for optimization of ships.

One of the most effective ways to reduce fuel consumption of a ship is to improve the hull form design. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) plays an ever-increasing role to achieve this, as it permits extensive design studies prior to any model testing. Instead of using one CFD-computation, automatic optimization procedures can be used to evaluate a series of hull forms.
