This paper deals with investigations performed at the Netherlands Ship Model Basin, concerning the handling of a tanker at low speed. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the benefit of coupling the propeller rpm to a rudder deflection. Model tests were carried out to establish both the increase of the rudder effectiveness and the acceleration of the tanker at low speed due to an increase of the propeller rpm.
