Displacement Hull-KCS

Displacement Hull-KCS:

The KRISO Container Ship (KCS)  was a modern container ship with a bulbous bow. This model has been used as one of the benchmark models for the displacement hull. The full size ship has a length of 230 meters, and a volume of 52030 cubic meters.


  • Automated meshing of the geometry
  • Superior speed enables transient simulations which are inherently more accurate
  • Can include complex features and tight clearances
  • Ease-of-use

Design Issues/Benefits:

  • Predict performance to within 5 %
  • Predict loads
  • Reduce noise
