Summary 

Ship-to-bank interaction is a complex physical phenomenon that involves not only in the asymmetric pressure field near banks or channels but also shallow water effect. Traditionally many experimental studies were carried out in this field. As numerical method is getting popular, there were various computational approaches as well. In this study, flow around a container ship in confined water is investigated with the open source CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) toolbox, OpenFOAM. Computations with several bank arrangements and different settings are performed. The OpenFOAM results are also compared to experiment results for validation.
