POSSIBLE WARNING CONDITIONS AND SYSTEMS FOR SHIP HANDLING IN ROUGH WEATHER

Systems intended to improve ship handling in rough weather have been on the market for some time. Their level of sophistication and the methods for data presentation are different, but they are all based on a very limited number of hull sensors. The systems have already shown that ship handling in rough weather has been improved. However, common to all systems are their lack of realistic wave load warning conditions. This paper describes a simple hull surveillance system built up around a microprocessor. gives experience gained from an extensive test programme and evaluates possible warning conditions for systems of this kind as obtained from actual sea trials. A possible detection of forthcoming bow damage conditions (slamming, shipping of green water) is given special attention.
