This report contains an overview of the computational work done for the 2014 SIMMAN workshop. It is based on a paper submitted for the workshop proceedings and a poster that was presented at the workshop. Three test cases (1b-1, 1b-3 and 1c-1) were selected for CFD computations. Of these, the latter two have a drift angle of 4 degrees, for case 1b-1, the ship sails straight ahead. A grid convergence study was executed for case 1c-1. All computations were carried out blind (so without knowing the experimental values). In addition to the contents of the paper, this report contains an analysis of the experimental data used as a reference, a comparison of the CFD result with the EFD results, and some flow visualisations that were not included in the paper due to page limitations. Apart from the lateral force for case 1b-1 (without drift), results are in very good agreement with the experimental data.
