VESSEL SAFETY MODEL. VOLUME II. USERS' MANUAL

Volume 2 presents a User's Manual, which is based on the analytic development in Volume 1 for the mathematical simulation of ship movement in defined waterways. This manual provides an overall description of the model, and includes the five-command structure and the predefined track input, which form the basis for all possible ship movement in the model. The overall description of ship movement in the model, together with sections on program definitions of harbors, ships, contour data, time measurements, and probabilities of collision or grounding provide the user with an adequate understanding of the mathematical model and its operation.
