Thoughts on the use of a commercial RANS code for sailing yacht design

Abstract

The complex problem of predicting the aero- and hydro-dynamic forces acting on a sailing yacht is discussed. Computations for incompressible turbulent flow around an NACA 0012 airfoil using the commercial CFD code FIDAP are presented. Lift coefficient is predicted well, but drag coefficient is not. The potential for application of Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) codes to downwind sail aerodynamics is explored.
