The subject of stopping of ships has been on the internal agenda of the Manoeuvrability Committee throughout the twelve years of its existence. At the latter Conference in 1969 a formal recommendation was finally given to this committee to review the state of art and to study the characteristics of ship and propeller in braking and other transient conditions. In the present appendix the author has analyzed a number of recent or classical papers on ship stopping, in particular for large vessels with a single propeller and has attempted to do a synthesis of them by surveying the problem of stopping manoeuver in all its aspects. It is certain that a number of papers have been overlooked in this investigation nevertheless the author believes that this survey gives a rather good picture of the present state of our knowledge on this subject -at least from hydrodynamic point of view. It results from this analysis that if the theory of ship stopping and our knowledge are sufficiently established on most points for practical applications some aspects of this manoeuver must still be subject of theoretical and experimental research.
