There exists a need for design guidance on the factors affecting ship steering control. This paper attempts to provide understanding and guidance on the problem. It starts by outlining the standard tests and methods of evaluating manoeuvring performance, it then goes on to report various developments and results which have been obtained at A.E.W. The paper concludes by offering an interpretation of the results as guidance for design to ensure good handling qualities in a ship.
