Description

This paper presents results of application of air lubrication method as one of the methods for ship water resistance reduction. The research was performed for a ship designed for shallow waters. Water resistance analyses were carried out for a certain range of speeds with air injection and without. Investigation was carried out using computational fluid dynamics software FLOW – 3D. Results presented graphically and in absolute values are showing the efficiency of applied method.
