AbstractEscort tugs use the combination of yaw angle and azimuthing thrusters to generate the hydrodynamic forces that are used to control a disabled tanker. The yaw angles used in escort operations (35-55 degrees) are considered to be extreme ?off-design? conditions in normal naval architecture terms but in the case of an escort tug they are expected operating conditions.
