ON TURNING ENERGY AND CENTRIFUGAL FORCE OF THE SHIP (SUPPLEMENT)
In the analysis of turning movements of the ship, the moment of inertia of a ships virtual mass about the pivoting point cannot be used as that of the ship when she is turning, because the moment of inertia varies according to turning conditions, and is the same in value as the centrifugal force exerted on the ship. By the help of this idea, the turning movement when the rudder is reversed while a ship is turning can be explained more clearly.
