DYNAMIC QUANTITATIVE METHODS FOR SOLVING ACTUAL SHIP MANOEUVRABILITY PROBLEMS

This paper addresses the problem of safe maneuvering of increasingly large ships within ports of essentially unchanged size. The author outlines present-day port maneuverability problems and examines a number of modern ship designs that have the potential for achieving adequate maneuverability. Some quantitative methods for assessing the interface of the three components of a port maneuver--the port, the ship, and the pilot--are described, and the role of ship simulators in solving actual in-port maneuverability problems is explored.
