Project: Optimization of the procedure for determining a mathematical model for the simulation of ship manoeuvres in shallow water by means of captive manoeuvring tests with ship models.

project duration
01-MAY-96 – 31-DEC-99
The project contains a series of research actions vielding optimal use of a computer controlled towing tank for manoeuvres with ship models in shallow water : - selection of a mathematical manoeuvring model - development of a procedure for determination of an experimental program - achievement of a procedure for processing results of captive manoeuvring tests into a mathematical model - development of a validation procedure - development of a quality control strategy.
