A ship in steering is considered as a physical mechanism that is forced by a rudder movement to produce a response. Emphasis is placed upon the relation between the forcing and the response, leaving aside any detailed consideration of the forces concerned. Course-keeping with automatic control techniques is studied following this concept. Computer programs are developed to simulate different conditions. Interpretation of the results is made to evaluate the different methods used. (Author)
