In the world of ever more increasing constraints on fuel consumption, trim optimisation becomes a more attractive option, which is further emphasized by the decreasing cost of CFD analysis. There is no doubt that trim optimisation can be very useful for fast displacement hulls such as container vessels, but can it be useful for full hull forms such as tankers and bulk carriers? Additionally, is the optimal trim in calm water also optimal in waves? We have conducted a trim optimisation study for an AFRAMAX tanker to find out the answers to these questions.
