COMPUTER PROGRAM FOR THE IDENTIFICATION OF SHIP HYDRODYNAMIC COEFFICIENTS FROM SEA TRIALS AND FOR THE SIMULATION OF SHIP MOTIONS

The software package Marine System Identification and System Simulation (MSI and SS) identifies ship hydrodynamic coefficients including resistance coefficients and simulates ship motions. Following the instructions insidfe the report, a user can prepare input files and run the programs without difficulties. However, since the identification is a recursive procedure, to be successful in the identification of hydrodynamic coefficients, it is very important for a user to have experience and knowledge of marine hydrodynamics. The package contains two groups of programs -- System Identification group and System Simulation group. The structures of the two groups of programs are illustrated by charts. Input files are discussed line by line with the presentation of samples of input and output files.
