Paper
Heel angles in turn and passenger safety

Mar 4, 2020

Sharp turns of passenger vessels may cause high heel angles, which may lead to dangerous situations on board. Passengers and crew could suffer ...
Paper
Sewol ferry capsizing and flooding

Mar 4, 2020

The capsizing and sinking of Sewol close to the South Korean coast in fair weather on April 16, 2014 caused the death of 304 people. In December ...
Paper
Estimating Berthing Performance of Twin Shaft Ship by means of CFD

Sep 22, 2019

Estimating ship low-speed manoeuvrability is a crucial and challeng-ing task especially in early design sign stage. It is essential in case of ...
Paper
Influence of Skeg on Ship Manoeuvrability at High and Low Speeds

Sep 22, 2019

This paper presents the results of manoeuvring model tests and CFD calculations for a twin-screw ferry with different skeg lengths. The impact of ...
Paper
Uncertainty analysis of free running manoeuvring model test on a modern ferry, with emphasis on heel angles

Jun 9, 2019

This paper presents an uncertainty study on the manoeuvring behaviour of a twin screw ferry. In particular, we are interested in heel angles that ...
Paper
Quantifying the Uncertainty of the Crabbing Capability

Jun 17, 2018

Crabbing is a critical manoeuvre that requires all of the ship’s propulsors to counteract environmental forces. It is a complex hydrodynamic ...
Paper
On the importance of service conditions and safety in ship design

Jun 10, 2018

A good ship design is a balanced design, in which the performance is not limited (or outperformed) by one specific characteristic. Today’s state of ...
Paper
Preliminary considerations on a unified model for hydrodynamic forces

Jul 1, 2016

The present paper details a selection of alternative formulations for (low speed) manoeuvring mathematical models, together with some proposed new ...
Paper
A benchmark program for comparing hydrodynamic forces obtained from simulations and captive tests

Oct 15, 2014

The purpose of this paper is to present a benchmark program for comparing hydrodynamic co-efficients calculated by manoeuvring prediction software ...
