This guide to the wide range of thruster systems available to enhance the manoeuvrability of all classes of ship is introduced by Dr. David Clarke (naval architecture department, British Ship Research Association) who describes the background to a project under way at BSRA which aims to identify what is meant by good manoeuvrability, with a view to establishing certain criteria by which comparison can be made between ships of different shapes and sizes. The guide covers twin pinion thrusters, jet thrusters, transverse propellers, rudder propellers, Becker rudders and Voith-Schneider propellers.
