The hydrodynamic forces of KVLCC2 ship sailing near inclined banks are calculated by using CFD based on RANS equation. Corresponding CFD uncertainty analysis is conducted according to the procedure recommended by ITTC. An unstructured grid, tetrahedral grid, is employed for discretization. To control the number of grids, global element scale factor is selected as the same as refinement ratio. In numerical simulation, straightforward and oblique navigation conditions are investigated.

Both hull model and hull-propeller-rudder model are considered in numerical simulation. The simulation results show the hydrodynamic characteristics of ship sailing near inclined banks.
