Now i'm using viscosity and turbulence physics modeler>Laminar (under turbulence options). As output results i'm getting pressure forces and shear forces. Shear forces are very very small. So does shear forces=friction resistance and pressure forces=viscous/wave making resistance? Do i have to enable some of the turbulence physics models to get correct friction resistance results? Do i have to set hull's roughness or/and material properties? So far i'm not very good at understanding it, so step by step explanation would be great.
