Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods are becoming an increasingly reliable and indispensable tool in the field of ship and offshore hydrodynamics. The main advantage of CFD methods over conducting experiments, in addition to time efficiency and cost saving, is shown in its detailed insight into the local flow characteristics. Besides, CFD analysis of the various designs enables robust, efficient, and economically viable solutions. Since the overall performance of ships and offshore structures as well as their environmental footprint significantly depends on their hydrodynamics characteristics, the rapid and accurate assessment on such characteristics is of utmost importance.
The aim of this Special Issue is to gather state-of-the-art contributions to numerical ship and offshore hydrodynamics. Researchers are welcome to submit original contributions that investigate the problems as well as reviews on the latest developments in the field of ship and offshore hydrodynamics.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
