THRUSTER/HULL INTERACTION

In general when thrusters are used in the dynamic positioning mode, the net force and moment acting on the hull are not simply the vectorial sum of the thruster forces and applied moments as though they acted in isolation. Significant interactions occur between the thruster and the hull. A method for quantifying these interactions is given followed by discussion of the interaction observed in the two cases of zero current and current present.
