FOUR YEARS OPERATION EXPERIENCE WITH THE SHIP CONTROL SIMULATOR
In its four years of existence the ship control simulator has shown to be of substantial interest to the marine industry. Together with a large number of manoeuvring courses for VLCC captains, mates and pilots, various projects have been carried out, ranging from studies of the manoeuvrability of newly designed ships to the nautical evaluation of harbour lay-outs and navigational aids. At the same time more fundamental research has been performed in order to get insight in the behaviour of the man-controlled ship(s). Some typical studies are summarized in this paper. Besides, some considerations are given which link up the results of the more fundamental research with the studies of practical nature.
