|Abstract: ||The flow field generated by a transom stern hullform
is a complex, broad-banded, three-dimensional system
marked by a large breaking wave. This unsteady multiphase
turbulent flow feature is difficult to study experimentally
and simulate numerically. The results of a set of numerical
simulations, which use the Numerical Flow Analysis (NFA) code,
of the flow around the Model 5673 transom stern at speeds
covering both wet- and dry-transom operating conditions are
shown in the accompanying fluid dynamics video. The numerical predictions for
wet-transom and dry transom conditions are presented to demonstrate
the current state of the art in the simulation of ship
generated breaking waves. The interested reader is referred to Drazen
et al. (2010) for a detailed and comprehensive comparison with
experiments conducted at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock
