A new article on ReFRESCO CFD simulations for the analysis of anti-roll tanks (ART) has been published online at MarineLink.com (work done back in 2014). The ReFRESCO results of the U-shaped ART have been compared with available CFD and experimental results from literature, as well as with MARIN’s own experiments, using the MARIN Anti-Roll Tank Facility. The results of the simulated and measured data concur very well. Interestingly, some scale effects in roll damping response have been observed, especially when the flow is restricted by obstacles in the tank. Further research on ARTs has been continued in 2015. For example, the mentioned scale effects and the free-surface ART have been studied to obtain an accurate and complete description of their design and response. On this a new article will come…
