Simulations are amongst other used to determine the allowable size of inland ships on waterways. Usually, these simulations are made using mathematical models, which were based on special model tests. The present paper and presentation will explain how a mathematical simulation model can be created without the use of model tests. Part of the research consisted of measurements on a new, not existing hull form, which was equipped as a twin screw and a single screw version. The model test results on this hull will be made available, and are foreseen as a next international benchmark for future investigation of the manoeuvring behaviour of inland vessels.
