The MOERI VLCC was conceived to provide data for both
explication of flow physics and CFD validation for a modern (ca. 1997) 300 K
tanker ship with bulb bow and stern. Two stern variants
were designed: KVLCC1 has barge type stern frame-lines with a fine stern
end bulb i.e. relatively V-shaped frame-lines, while KVLCC2 has more U-shaped
stern frame-lines. Both of these variants are included in the workshop. No
full-scale ship exists.
