ON THE MEASUREMENT OF THE STABILITY DERIVATIVES BY MEANS OF FORCED YAWING TECHNIQUE

In this paper, the authors describe the forced yawing technique, especially the mechanism of the yawing oscillator and measuring system, by which the stability derivatives of a ship model are measured. In order to compare the derivatives obtained by this method with the ones obtained by the rotating arm technique, the authors carried out the experiments in low frequency range. As a result of these tests, a fairly good agreement between both data was recognized. In addition, the authors discuss the kinds of motions to which a ship model is subjected in order to get data more aaccurately and easily.
