Manoeuvring & Nautical studies
The research programme Manoeuvring & Nautical studies focuses on the design and assessment of ships and offshore constructions regarding manoeuvring and on nautical safety and human factors in operations. The programme aims at increasing the understanding and modelling capabilities of hydrodynamics of manoeuvring ships and improve the knowledge of nautical safety and human factors.
