SIMULATORS FROM THE NAVAL ARCHITECT'S POINT OF VIEW

Man/machine systems analysis on ship handling is still a relatively new science, but a realistic evaluation of manoeuvrability of a ship is possible only through such studies. Apart from its use in training, it also has practical application in (i) defining the necessary and sufficient degree of steerng quality of a ship in a given situation; (ii) evaluation of handling performance of a ship at the planning stage; (iii) discussions between naval architects and seamen with regard to manoeuvring performance; and (iv) evaluation of shipborne navigational instruments, steering gears, and other systems involved in ship-handling, and development of new types of such equipment.
