AbstractThis paper describes a new approach for carrying out standard manoeuvring experiments under development by IMD that involves the derivation of hydrodynamic coefficients from Planar Motion Mechanism (PMM) experiments for input to a numerical simulation routine capable of generating standard ship manoeuvres. An extensive experimental program was carried out to verify possible options in using PMM efficiently and to verify various testing configurations. The effort underway to build the analysis procedures into a compact site package, evaluate the methodology and develop a versatile on-line stand-alone analysis tool enabling immediate data verification and for complete on-line analysis is defined. Plans for validation of the entire procedure against full scale data are also described.
