Analysis Resistance on Ice-Hull Interaction of Double Acting Tanker using Couple Eulerian Langrangian in Abaqus Simulation
This article will discuss the magnitude of resistance force when ships is sailing head or astern in the ice sea. Normally only icebreaker is able to travel on it but in this article will be reviewed special ship a double acting tanker (DAT). This ship was sailing head in open sea ice and astern in the ice sea. This can be done because the presence of azipods in driving system. The approach was carried out using simulation program with base on finite element method. Abaqus has ability to calculate interaction between fluid and solid by Couple Eulerian Langrangian (CEL) facility. While the ship model is made using Rhinoceros software because has Non Uniform Rational Basis Spline (NURBS) facility, so all curves and surface designs have qualify the mathematical rules for computer graphics.
