AbstractThe aim of this study is to develop a numerical tool that could be used to assess the physical stress levels associated with the vessel motions on board of fishing vesels of the Newfoundland fleet. A number of full-scale sea trials of typical fishing vessels of the fleet are underway to validate the numerical tool. Model experiments are expected to follow in the newr future. If desirable correlations between the trials and the numerical results are obtained, simulations will be performed to obtain typical 'motion stress" profiles of various fishing boats over a typical fishing season. This paper presents the preliminary results obtained so far. Sea trials for a 35' fishing vessel was conducted. Sample results presented in the paper. Motion Induced Interruption (MII), which will be used to assess the physical stress levels has been implemented into the numerical tool and few case stuties performed for the 35' fishing vessel. Results obtained so far have been promising.
