A Study on Integrated Maneuvering Performance Simulation System for a Vessel
Unlike cars, ship owners are able to select the model, engine type and additional options of their ship. Due to such characteristics, because ships are relatively greater in size and take longer to build, in most cases, only a few functions are verified through actual real ship test and the basic performance and maneuvering performance of a ship are verified through model ship test, analysis and simulation conducted. Moreover, since the results are provided to the ship owner in the form of a maneuvering performance booklet upon delivery of that ship, this maneuvering performance booklet is associated with all the departments in charge of design and engineering. Thus, it takes to a lot of time to build a booklet because all related maneuvering results have to be gathered from all departments and arranged consistently. This paper proposed an integrated maneuvering performance simulation system to reduce cost to gather all data from departments and to build a booklet consistently. Also, this integrated system can reinforce the research capacity of that shipbuilding company through mutually analyzing and sharing its information among each separated department.
