Existing knowledge of hydrodynamic factors affecting the movement of a ship in restricted waterways is critically examined. It is shown that the external forces can be either active, such as rudder power from either engine or rudder (and even tugboats), or passive, such as improved communications which enable quicker response to a change in navigability conditions and improved navigational aids. Any change in the characteristics of the vessel, the canal, or the controllable subsystem, affects the remainder of the system.
