MODEL DATA USED TO PREDICT MANOEUVRING PERFORMANCE
A test technique to predict maneuverability is described. The method was developed by the Hyundai Maritime Research Institute at Hyundai's Ulsan yard. It involves a Planar Motion Mechanism (PMM) that enables performing model tests in which angular and straight line motion can be imposed on a model in a conventional towing tank. From PMM captive model tests, the hydrodynamic coefficients required for computer simulation of a vessel's maneuverability are obtained. The system can be used for both static and dynamic tests.
