The paper reports on a combined computational and experimental study on the aerodynamics of the superstructure of a container vessel. The study aims to assess the potential of add-on components to reduce the aerodynamic drag and validate the capabilities of hybrid RANS/LES approaches against traditional URANS methods. Results indicate the superior predictive performance of hybrid approaches and highlight the potential of aerodynamic add-on devices in the deckhouse region.
