In this paper we present numerical and experimental work motivated by the study of a rudder profile with significant levels of lift that provides better performance for the maneuvering and stabilization of a ship. This is the so-called Schilling profile. The analysis of the two-dimensional subsonic steady flow over four profiles was carried out using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools with a κ-ω SST turbulence model. We consider three Schilling profiles with different thicknesses and the classical NACA 0015 profile, taken as a reference. Simulation results were compared to our experimental measurements at various angles of attack and two orders of magnitude of the Reynolds number, 5.45 × 104 and 1.09 × 105. The numerical results show general good agreement with experimental data and highlight the distinct behavior of Schilling profile.
