HELMSMAN PERFORMANCE ON SHIPS DURING TURNING MANOEUVRES

This report is in microfiche form. An experiment has been conducted on a manoeuvring simulator to study helmsman performance at the wheel of a ship during a turn, specifically to check the swing of a vessel having a standardised rate of turn. Various experimental conditions were adopted, including ship size, rate of turn, and the presence or absence of a rate of turn indicator. Performance measures were developed to assess the quality of steering under each combination of experimental conditions.
