FORCE CALCULATION OF A RECTANGULAR PLATE MOVING OBLIQUELY IN WATER CHANNELS

With the continued increase in the size of oil tankers restricted water effects on manoeuvrability, which posed few problems previously, are now of greater concern. In the previous paper, S. Inoue and K. Murayama proposed how to calculate the force acting on a turning ship in shallow water by the analogy of Bollay's wing theory. In this paper, by their method, the authors calculated the derivatives of the force acting on a rectangular plate moving obliquely in finite water depth and in finite water channel width using infinite images. According to this result, it can be said that the ratio of derivatives in infinite water channel width and in finite water channel width coincided with the experimental result in model ship. Accordingly, we think that this method is a foundation of the study on manoeuvrability of a ship in water channels.
