In this paper, the resistance predictions are carried out at model scale of the medium and low speed handy-size bulk carrier by utilizing the CFD software SHIPFLOW. The appropriate methods are implemented to numerically simulate resistance coefficients of the full block bulk carrier with transom stern at relative low speed and the ways of improving the stern grid quality in terms of transom stern flow to ensure the accuracy of the numerical results are proposed. By comparison with the experimental data, the deviation could be controlled below 3%, satisfying the engineering requirement. Therefore, the feasibility of the numerical prediction method based on SHIPFLOW was validated, which provides a guarantee for the stage of design optimization and demonstration to ensure its results.
