Abstract

This paper investigates the employment of whaleback forecastle tackling the problem of green water. Green water experimental set-up is briefly described, and the hydrodynamic model of green water is introduced. Generic designs of whaleback forecastle are also described, and the development of the model for computational fluid dynamics simulation is explained. Two green water conditions (categorised by its severity) are considered for analysis, and the simulation results are analysed to understand the changes in the green water loading. Conclusions are finally drawn on the effectiveness and adequacy of the whaleback forecastle as an option to reduce green water loading on high-speed container vessels.
