A study has been carried out for the optimization of a Trimaran hull form to minimize the total resistance of hull. Main hull of the Trimaran has been taken into consideration for optimization, while the geometry of outriggers is kept same. The optimization is based on the integration of genetic algorithm with computational fluid dynamics. The optimization process is kept automatic without any interference by the user. Four different cases of optimization are carried out, and the calculated results are compared with the experimental results. The results obtained from optimization process demonstrate the effectiveness of genetic algorithm integration with the computational fluid dynamics tools for hull form optimization.
