METHODS OF WATERWAY AND SHIP PARAMETERS OPTIMIZATION, THEIR LIMITATIONS AND CRITERIA

The paper describes methods of marine traffic engineering used in restricted areas, their credibility depends mainly on criteria and limitation used. To determine the parameters of waterways, a number of simulation optimization methods have been applied depending upon area type, mainly fairways, turning basins and harbour basins. The method of ship parameters optimization, in turn, is concerned only with ships which in ports manoeuvre by themselves, such as sea ferries or river/channel ferries, designed for specific ports.
