Paper
An Extensive Experimental Investigation of Shallow- and Confined-Water Effects on the Manoeuvring Forces of a 110m Inland Ship

May 22, 2022

Due to the complexity of the physics in shallow water and lack of benchmark, more insights are needed to derive accurate mathematical models for ...
Paper
Assessment of the Manoeuvrability Characteristics of a Twin Shaft Naval Vessel Using an Open-Source CFD Code

Jun 16, 2021

The purpose of this study is to assess the quality of the manoeuvre prediction of a twinshaft naval vessel by means of a time-domain simulator based ...
Paper
Scale Effects on Free Running Model Tests

Sep 11, 2015

Free running manoeuvring model tests are one of most used model tests to quickly assess the manoeuvrability of a ship. The results of these tests ...
Paper
Validation of a Software Tool (DROPSIM) to Predict the 'Drop and Getaway' Behaviour of a Lifeboat

Jun 1, 2015

The purpose of a free fall lifeboat is to evacuate people from platforms in case of emergency, and when other, normal means of evacuation, are not ...
Paper
Mathematical Model for Efficient Prediction of Lifeboat Sailaway Performance in Calm Water and Waves

Jun 1, 2015

Free fall lifeboats have been developed for emergency evacuation from offshore installations, when conventional means of transportation cannot be ...
Paper
New benchmark data for manoeuvring in shallow water based on free running manoeuvring tests including uncertainty of the results

Jun 1, 2015

This paper gives the results of free running model tests for the KVLCC2 in shallow water. The paper describes how free running model tests in ...
