EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES ON THE MANEUVERABILITY OF A SHIP WITH STERN BULB

The maneuverability of a ship equipped with a stern bulb is compared with that of a ship that has a conventional inverted G-type stern. The comparisons are based on both free-running model tests and full-scale sea trials conducted for two 60,000 dwt tankers having basically the same principal particulars but with the different stern shapes. Circular motion tests for the two ships were also conducted to investigate their differences in maneuverability by analyzing the hydrodynamic derivatives obtained from tests.
