Verification and validation study was performed based on to the methodology and procedures of the International Towing Tank Conference. The verification was based on a mesh dependency study, Richardson extrapolations, and uncertainty analysis with factor of safety methods. The validation was performed by comparing the experimental data of the 17.500 DWT tanker, tested in calm water at the Indonesian Hydrodynamic Laboratory, with computational data. The verification and validation results revealed that it was possible to improve the reliability of the numerical simulation by reducing the errors and uncertainties related to resistance prediction.
