This study examines the dynamics of turbulent flow in the wake of a turning ship using the large eddy simulation (LES) technique. LES is applied in conjunction with a random flow generation (RFG) technique originally developed at West Virginia University to provide unsteady inflow boundary conditions. As the ship is turning, the effects of the Coriolis and centrifugal forces on vortical structures are included. The effects of the Coriolis force on the flow-field are assessed and a grid sensitivity study is performed. The predicted turbulence structures are analyzed and compared with the wake of a non-turning ship.
