Abstract

The Wigley hull is considered as the initial ship, which can be globally deformed by shifting method and locally deformed by RBF (Radial Basis Function) method to generate a bulbous bow. Two optimization cases are given. In case 1, only shifting method is used, while in case 2, shifting and RBF methods are both used. The genetic algorithm is taken to obtain two optimal ships with minimum wave drag. Further validation by CFD solver naoe-FOAM-SJTU turns out that for the hull without bulbous bow, through combination of the two methods, a hull that has a much fewer wave drag can be obtained.
