SOME ASPECTS OF PREDICTION AND SIMULATION OF MANEUVERS
Prediction and simulation are dependent on the knowledge gained from mathematical models. The choice and the form of the model is determined by the specific application and the accuracy required. Model techniques, such as horizontal oscillation tests, provide the means of finding the coefficients of extensive non-linear models, though for other purposes, such as simulation, there is also a need for simpler, empirical models. To determine the coefficients of such models, free-running full-scale or model tests are necessary.
