AbstractThe equations governing the boom-assisted deployment of a lifeboat from a moving support are formulated in three dimensions using Kane?s method, accounting for the coupling of the dynamics of the boom and lifeboat. The effect of wind loading is included. At splashdown we assume a controlled water entry and hence the buoyancy force, but not impact force, is modeled. The equations are solved numerically using a standard Runge-Kutta MATLAB routine. Comparison with a known solution for a special case is illustrated.
