Abstract : This paper focuses on viscous drag computations based on Reynolds-averaged, Navier Stokes (RANS) equations. Computations were performed on axisymmetric bodies of revolution at angles of attack ranging from 0 to 18 degrees. Calculations were also performed on three surface ship hull forms. The results were compared with experimental data and were found to be in good agreement.
