PROBLEMS AND REQUIREMENTS OF DIRECTIONAL STABILITY AND CONTROL OF SURFACE SHIPS

This paper summarizes the stability and control problem for ships, and the various differential equations giving yaw dependence on rudder angle are developed. Experimental methods for evaluating the time constants are described. Non-linear behaviour is discussed.
