Hi to everybody,
i'm an aerospace engineer and I'm working as CFD and Structural Engineer.
For my simulation I use Ansys CFX v11.
Most of my simulations are about multiphase flowfields. I've simulated semi submerged rudder, flaps and also a semi submerged propeller (there are two videos about it on youtube. Look for "cfd semi submerged propeller").
Now, I'm trying to simulate planing hulls but i've a great problem.
A very thin air layer appears between the hull and the free surface. Infact, at the and of the simulation the hull is completely dry.
i would like to know if someone studied this kind of simulation and have some idea or solution of this problem.
Thank you very much to everyone!

I think you will need to go to the literature for this. I doubt you will find people with experience in a specialised area like this on the forum (but you never know your luck).

Hi Stephane,
i received your email at victory address.
First of all, thank you very much for the instructions that yuo gave me.
I'll start some simulation in order to set all the parameters.
You told me about a newsletter that you sent me today, but i never received it.
I don't know openfoam but now I'll try to have some news about it.
If you can, and you you want, i would like to continue to have contact with you in order to share ideas and "problems". In order to have the possibility to read your message in every moment, I prefer to receive your msg in this forum or at my private address (cannavacciuolociro@gmail.com). I hope it will not be a problem for you. Thank you very much.
Ciro

Dear all,

I am experiencing a very similar problem with Star-CCM and Fluent during analysis of a planing yacht. As speeds are increased (and hence the trim) a layer of air travels aft below the hull and the bottom of the hull dries...

Could you please share how you managed to overcome the situation?

Kind regards,

Ziya

I would imagine in this case the air under the hull would form a very thin layer. You will need a fine mesh to resolve this thin air layer. Have you done a mesh refinement check to ensure it is not fixed by simply a finer mesh?

Actually, the problem gets worse as the mesh gets finer.
If the mesh is coarsened and the boundary layer mesh is not applied, the air film under the hull no longer forms. But then, the wall treatment is no longer valid and the drag values are no longer reliable...

Then is sounds like you are a long way away from an adequate mesh. You need to go much finer until it starts to converge.

Of course a coarser mesh makes it disappear - the thin layer is smeared across a big element and quickly dissipates. The wall treatment and drag is the least of your worries. You need a mesh fine enough to resolve the feature.
