EFFECT OF STEERING GEAR ON DYNAMIC BEHAVIOR OF SHIPS
This report presents results obtained in a series of digital simulation studies of ship maneuvering motions, requested by the U.S. Coast Guard for IMCO Steering Gear Project. Major Objectives of the study are to examine: a. The effect on safe maneuvering of the vessel of various time lags in restoring power to the steering gear. b. The lower cut-off-ship-size for ships to have their steering gear connected to an emergency source of power.
