Description/Abstract

The manual is a user guide for the suite of programs SORACOS V3.2.

SORACOS is designed to simulate the non-linear rolling motion of a ship in regular beam waves at zero speed. It can supply the user with a wide variety of tabular and graphical output including the frequency response of the rolling ship, some measure of its stability, and/or a time dependent rolling response.

The user can select the mathematical model he wishes to use. Currently there are two,

(i) 'Model 1' was developed by the University of Southampton by Wright and Féat. (1)

(ii) 'Model 2' was developed by the University of Newfoundland by Bass. (2)
