The numerical method developed for the solution of the partially- parabolic Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations has been generalized to solve the fully-elliptic equations. This method is applied to calculate the flow over the stern and in the wake of several ship forms for which extensive data are available. The report also provides an overview of the present status of experiments and computational capabilities for such flows. Keywords Reynolds averaged Navier Stokes, Equations, Turbulence models, Body fitted coordinates, Ship stern flows, Ship wake.
