Paper Title: Study of Airflow Around Ship with Rigid Sail Array and Potential Array Propulsive Power 

 

Authors

G M Atkinson, Eco Marine Power, Japan and University of Tasmania, Australia

Summary  

An array of rigid sails installed on a large powered ship could provide a viable means to reduce fuel oil consumption (FOC) and emissions by using the power of the wind as a source of supplementary propulsion. This paper describes the study of airflow around a concept ship design fitted with 14 segment rigid sails (SRS) using a virtual wind tunnel software application and also investigates the propulsive force that a fixed sail array could provide using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis.
