The Towboat Maneuvering Simulator consists of a mathematical description of the hydrodynamic response of an integrated river tow embodied in a computer program running continuously on a computer, with a control console and other graphic and hard copy devices attached for input and output. It is thus a real time, interactive simulator, constantly responding to console commands and immediately updating the console displays. This volume describes the use of the simulator, provides a block diagram of the program flow, and presents sample input and output. (Author)
