MEASUREMENT OF STEERING DERIVATIVES ON FULL SCALE SHIP TRIALS
The track of a ship executing manoeuvres may be recorded relative to a floating buoy and analysed to give speed and drift velocity. A new oscillating turn manoeuvre is described. The results of this, together with turning circles and pull-outs, may be used to calculate six linear and two non-linear derivatives in the equations of sway and yaw. A numerical example is given, based upon full-scale trials on a small vessel.
