AbstractThis report describes the model tests that were conducted in the OEB (Offshore Engineering Basin) at IOT (Institute for Ocean Technology), for the Robert Sisters II fishing vessel. This project is a small component of the overall SafetyNet Initiative project and is aimed at understanding the MII’s (Motion Induced Interruption’s) of fishing vessels. In November of 2004, the Robert Sisters II sea trials were conducted 10 nm off of St. John’s, NL. A numerical model simulation of the vessel was also used based on a code developed between researchers at ITO and Memorial University. This report takes the results obtained from the model tests and uses the data to validate both the sea trials and numerical results. The model test results were shown to correlate with that of the sea trials and numerical results, thus helping to better mitigate MII’s.
