Resistance and Added Mass

I have not used flow simulation, but have several problems I need to solve.  The resistance and added mass are typically used in Naval Architecture to solve various hydrodynamic problems.  Normally I use handbooks and experience to estimate the factors to support another analysis.  Resistance can be solved using the pressure distribution, if the result can be input into simulation.  The added mass is dependent on a varying flow rate.  I would like to know if flow simulation can solve for this information, before I start to learn flow simulation.  There are other programs available, but provide more information than I need.
