Basic performance analysis and preliminary design for reproduction of a typical 17 th century Taiwanese junk

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A typical 17 th century Taiwanese junk sailing between Taiwan and Japan is studied by modern naval architecture methodology and tools based on a recreation study. We analyze hydrostatic performance, resistance, and safety based on nonlinear rolling simulation. Her performance is compares with other typical types of Chinese junks. It is found that she has certain seaworthiness, but worse than typical Fu-Chuan. It is also the first time to use computational fluid dynamics simulation to analyze the flow field and waves made. The results show that its bow must be stiff to resist relative high pressure.
