THE INFLUENCE OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR ON THE CONTROLLABILITY OF SHIPS

This paper considers only those situations where a ship maneuvers within a restricted waterway, as for example, at the entranceway to a harbor or when transiting a congested channel. In these situations the physiological aspects of men play an important role. Furthermore, their psychological characteristics such as responsibility, mental stress and instinct, combined with their ability to react under such circumstances, play an equally important role.
