THRUSTER SYSTEMS FOR IMPROVING THE MANEUVERABILITY AND POSITION-KEEPING CAPABILITY OF FLOATING OBJECTS

This paper deals with investigations performed at the Netherlands Ship Model Basin on thrusters which are able to improve maneuverability and position-keeping ability of vessels and other floating objects. The characteristics of these thrusters, (thrust and power at different angles of attack, transverse force and moments) are discussed.
