RANS simulations are implemented to analyse the hydrodynamic characteristics of twin-rudders, i.e. Flat plate rudders, NACA rudders, and Wedge-tail rudders. The study mainly focuses on small attack angles. Results show that the NACA series is the most efficient profile while the Wedge-tail rudder has the highest rudder effectiveness.
