A PRACTICAL ANALYSIS ON MANOEURABILITY AND ITS APPLICATION TO SHIP DESIGN
The Author presents a number of expressions for calculating manoeuvrability which could be of considerable value to ship designers. The hydrodynamic forces and moments acting on a ship and its rudder are capable of being evaluated by special types of tank test, namely forced yaw or rotating-arm and oblique-tow tests. Provided that these experimental data are available for a given ship, the ship motion induced by any rudder movement can be predicted. This approach is termed the "captive model plus digital simulation" technique. Order from: BSRA as No. 47,724.
