This paper presents results of numerical simulation of the aftpart hull form of a research vessel. The wake rolls onto the transom platform, therefore creating additional resistance to the movement of the vessel. To solve the problem and to propose the optimal transom form, the study was carried out using the method of successive approximations and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) algorithms. The flow lines around the hull of the vessel and the wave pattern behind the hull were analysed, and the optimal transom form was chosen. Water resistance analysis was carried out to prove the efficiency of the chosen solution.
