This paper presents a study on the Verification and Validation (V&V) of CFD solutions for a tanker without appendages manoeuvring at varying drift angles and water depths. A steady state Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes solver is applied to solve the viscous flow around the ship neglecting the free surface, sinkage and trim. Discretization errors and uncertainties in hydrodynamic forces and moments are estimated through grid convergence studies. Validation is performed by comparison with model test data.

Nyckelord: Discretization error; Drift; Shallow water; Ship manoeuvring; Uncertainty
