Enhanced preliminary design manoeuvring simulator techniques

Wilson, P.A., Squires, M.A. and Seakins, P.A. (1990) Enhanced preliminary design manoeuvring simulator techniques At International Conference on Modelling and Control of Marine Craft. 18 - 20 Apr 1990. 12 pp, pp. 40-51.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper describes how the present methods that are available for determining preliminary design estimates for the prediction of ship manoeuvring information can be used with high definition graphics systems. Previously the major drawbacks in the simulation techniques have been the speed of simulation and the display system. Both of these drawbacks will be demonstrated to have been overcome to the extent that the complete package is an extremely useful and elegant design tool. Since the first versions of the program were written extra design methodologies have arisen. One that will be demonstrated is the use of four quadrant propeller data. This allows the complete spectrum of ship direction and propeller revolutions to be explored. One special plea, from this paper, is for more data of this kind to be measured and the be published in the public domain.
