SHIP MANEUVERING IN WAVES

This paper describes a mathematical model for predicting the motions of a ship while maneuvering in waves. The model takes into account all important disturbances and includes the effect of past motions on the forces action on the hull (the memory effects). These effects are important for wave-induced motions but are neglected for conventional time-domain maneuvering predictions owing to the difficuty of modeling them and to their relative lack of importance for calm water maneuvering. The approach used combines existing models for calm water maneuvering and linear ship motions in waves. This combined model will reduce in the limit of no waves and of small waves with no maneuvering to these two cases.
