The Author explains in detail how stopping manoeuvres of a ship can be predicted on board, with a freely-programmable small computer, for different conditions such as initial speed, draught, and hull fouling. In general, only conventional data available on board are needed for the calculation, together with the results of a carefully-conducted single test-manoeuvre in which rpm and ship-speed readings are taken at brief time-intervals during stopping. A two-part program is used; one part is for the analysis of the test manoeuvre, and the other for calculating the stopping manoeuvres. The need for such shipboard calculations is briefly discussed.
