This paper describes the setup of a mathematical model for the prediction of the manoeuvrability of frigates by means of computer simulations. For the manoeuvrability in still water, a quasi-static math description is used while dynamic effects are added for the description of the manoeuvrability in a seaway. In this latter description, the dynamic effects of the rudder action on the ship its roll behaviour are also incorporated.
