The paper proposes a series of numerical investigations performed to test and demonstrate the capabilities of a RANS solver in the area of complex ship flow simulations. Focus is on a complete numerical model for hull, propeller and rudder that can account for the mutual interaction between these components. The paper presents the results of a complex investigation of the flow computations around the hull model of the 3600 TEU MOERI containership (KCS hereafter). The resistance for the hull equipped with rudder, the POW computations as well as the self-propulsion simulation are presented. Comparisons with the experimental data provided at the Tokyo 2015 Workshop on CFD in Ship Hydrodynamics are given to validate the numerical approach in terms of the total and wave resistance coefficients, sinkage and trim, thrust and torque coefficients, propeller efficiency and local flow features. Verification and validation based on the grid convergence tests are performed for each computational case. Discussions on the efficiency of the turbulence models used in the computations as well as on the main flow features are provided aimed at clarifying the complex structure of the flow around the stern.
