Water affect wonder of general bow area is a basic occasion for arranging
frames. In this paper, the water passage of a few subjective bow areas is
examined. For this reason, self-assertive bow shapes which are presented by
Lewis frame estimation are considered. Keeping in mind the end goal to
acquire weight dispersion and free surface profile, volume of liquid (VOF)
strategy combined with limited volume technique (FVM) are used in ANSYSCFX
solver. Weight conveyance, free surface, and development of
convergence point on bow areas are displayed, while auxiliary water effect is
illustrated. Examination of the acquired results against beforehand
distributed works indicates great assertion.
