TIME LENGTH OF A SHIP TRIP. IN: MARINE TECHNOLOGY V

For both container and passenger ships, arriving at the destination port according to schedule is very important. Rough sea conditions can make it difficult to calculate the exact length of time a trip might take. The main objective of this paper is to estimate the service speed of a ship by taking into account wind and wave resistance (involuntary speed reduction) and seakeeping criteria (voluntary speed reduction). Presented is a mathematical model which takes into account both voluntary and involuntary speed reduction, the predetermined route , the ship and its propulsion system specifications as well as the hydrodynamic effects of sea waves and winds. The paper presents a case study using this model for a container vessel operating between Bandar Abbas, Iran and Hamburg, Germany.
