A RATIONAL COMBINATION OF DIRECTIONAL STABILITY AND TURNING CAPACITY

It is necessary in the design of any ship to compromise between the conflicting requirements of directional stability and manoeuvrability. Thus the less stable a ship is, the more readily it can be turned by a given rudder. This paper is concerned with a rational assessment of these requirements and the associated design of an effective rudder.
