BRAKING AND REVERSING SHIP DYNAMICS

The results of a ship braking and reversing dynamics study are presented for a COGAG, single screw, ship with a fixed pitch propeller, a reversing reduction gear, and a water brake for dynamic braking of the propeller. A digital computer simulation was used to calculate the major whip and propulsion plant parameters for various propulsion maneuvers including coast down, braking, and reversing. A computer technique for solving the ship propulsion dynamics equations is described, the equations for clutching and braking are derived, and the results of braking and reversing maneuvers for speeds greater than 30 knots are shown in detail for a hypothetical study ship.
