CALCULATION OF CROSS FORCES ACTING ON A SHIP AT LARGER DRIFT ANGLES

In this paper, special attention is given to the cross flow around each cross section of a ship during oblique motions with large drift angle, from lateral shifting motion to ahead motion. A distribution of bound vortices and free vortices is used to represent 2-dimensional separated flow around a ship section. The separation points are defined from velocity distributions for non-separated flow. The representation of the latest free vortex shed from a separation point at any incidence is discussed. Numerical results for a container ship hull drifting motions are presented. A comparison of the measured results of oblique towing model tests at increasing forward speed show that the calculated lateral forces and yaw moments acting on a ship agree well with the experimental results. This approach is useful for more accurate prediction of ship manoeuvrability at low speed.
