USE OF FULL SCALE TRIAL RESULTS FOR INVESTIGATIONS OF MANEUVERABILITY OF SHIPS

Ship trials provide a very important source of information for analyzing various critical aspects of ship maneuverability. This paper is devoted to the consideration of two such maneuverability aspects: definition of the steering criteria and determination of the hydrodynamic characteristics of the hull. A set of criteria based on parameters determining ship maneuverability is considered. A mathematical method is then presented for determination of the hydrodynamic characteristics of a ship hull from the parameters of motion measured during maneuvering trials. The method is based on the results of the analysis of the relationship between the hydrodynamic forces acting on the ship hull and rudder. The hull hydrodynamic characteristics determined from the trials can be used in developing new hull designs, in the study of scale effects and in other applications to ship maneuverability.
