This report investigates the free surface capture of the Overlapping Domain Decomposition Level Set Method (ODDLS). The CFD software Tdyn is used to carry out computations in unison with GiD a pre/post processor to prepare the model and to analysis data. The Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian method is also applied to allow deformation of the model mesh to allow the hull to sink and trim and to optimise free surface capture.
The offshore patrol vessel NT-130 developed by Navtec in Chile is the focus of the computations. Experimental towing tank data for still water conditions was compared to Tdyn results to asses its performance. Also, data from tests in wave conditions is presented in this report.
