Wind drift making headway - practical experiments for voyage planning and Rule of Thumb


published on 7 April 2021 183

Found on YouTube. Created by "ISSIMS - Innovative Ship Simulation". Originally published on 2021-03-08.
Here are described some experiments to get data for voyage planning:
- how to measure wind effects and prepare ship specific diagrams to estimate required drift angles and also rudder angles for wind balance
- to be applied for voyage planning, considering expected operational conditions, specifically for preparing manoeuvring plans for Port arrival and departure planning!
- analysing theses data a simple formula could be derived to calculate the drift angle ß depending on absolute wind speed VA, encounter angle aA and ship speed Vs to:
ß= arctan (CD*(VA +Vs*cos aA)*sin aA)/Vs)
And all this is demonstrated by means of the unique SAMMON Planning software based on Fast Time Simulation of ship manoeuvres...
Enjoy, share and give some thumbs up, if you are satisfied with the movie - and my haircut!

In my experience, a ship moving ahead, rudder amidships, the ship will develop a rate of turn into the wind. However the first manoeuvre on this simulator with rudder midships does not show this, in fact no RoT at all. Quite often at work, I will tell the bridge team I am about to start a turn to starboard/port, order midships and then try to crack a joke about the ship has been here before and knows where to go!!

Video How Ship Anchor Works? - Procedure For Anchoring a Ship at Sea

#Anchor #shipanchor #windlass Anchoring is one of the very frequent operations onboard ships. A number of variables and external factors influence the duration and location of an anchoring operation. While the type of seabed is of utmost importance during anchoring, soft muddy grounds or clay bottoms are best preferred. It should be taken care that the anchoring bottom is free of power lines, submarine cables, pipelines or rocks. Various methods on anchoring include consideration of...

Video Rare 1865 Great Lakes Coast Pilot Restoration - Episode 1

Join Great Lakes maritime historian and antiquarian Brendon Baillod as he discusses the restoration and conservation of a rare and very early 1865 Thompson's Great Lakes Coast Pilot. Early coast pilot books were kept on every schooner and steamer and Lakes and contain important details about the history of harbors, navigation, obstructions and shipwrecks on the Lakes. This 1865 Thompson's is among the rarest and also badly in need of stabilization. Enjoy this two part series where this...

Video Dynamic failure of pilot boats: Risk mitigation & management

Following a surf riding and broaching incident and subsequent collision by an experienced vessel operator, QinetiQ have been undertaking extensive investigations into the risk mitigation and safety management of pilotage operations. This presentation looks to discuss the risks presented during pilotage services, and provide a critical review of vessel design and service delivery approaches to understand the potential risk mitigations and management of pilot boat safety.

Video Failed overtaking of another ship in a canal - Port Revel Shiphandling

Manoeuvring large ships at close quarters and on shallow water is one of the most difficult aspects of shiphandling because of the complex hydraulic interactions depending on the ships' speeds, on the water depth and on lateral restrictions like in canals. Training is conducted both on meeting and on overtaking ships in shallow waters. This video shows how overtaking in a canal can easily fail.

Video Presenting OpenBridge Design System at DSD2020 in Oslo

I recently presented the OpenBridge design system at the Design System Day 2020 in Oslo. I talked about what OpenBridge is, how it differs from other design systems and where we are heading.
The conference was moved online due to the Corona virus, so I had to record the presentation using my mobile phone, and get Jon Olav from the lab to add the slides. So - apologize for the home quality of the presentation, but I hope you enjoy learning more about our work!
Since we launched the free...
