Yaw Stability of Ships - Basic Principles by Knud Benedict


published on 18 November 2021 305 -

Found on YouTube. Created by "ISSIMS - Innovative Ship Simulation". Originally published on 2021-08-29.
Yaw Stability is an important element of Ships Manoeuvrability - both for course keeping and turning ability. This first video in a series explains the Basic Principles of stability in steady state equilibrium conditions and the forces / moments involved. The role of the unstable moment due to drift angel and the stabilising damping moment due to rate of turn in the yawing motion will be discussed. Definitions of yaw stability during turning motion and on straight motion will be given. Samples of stable and unstable ship behaviour will be shown by Fast Time Simulation using the SAMMON Planning tool.
The next videos will demonstrate manoeuvres (e.g. Spiral Test, Pull-out Test and Zig-Zag Test) to identify and discuss the stability condition for ships and the different aspects contributing to yaw stability.

Nice explanation on turning and yaw stability. I think it’s important to consider all forces involved to the Pivot point and point of application of external disturbance, which changes according incidence of heading.

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

published on 11 July 2020

#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 Understanding and Preventing Tug & Barge Risks

published on 15 January 2021

Blog: https://www.merrimacins.com/understanding-and-preventing-tug-barge-risks/ Understanding and Preventing Tug & Barge Risks The maritime industry relies on tugboats and barges for a wide range of applications. Tugs are used to pilot vessels into and out of ports, while barges are used to transport bulk materials. The relationship between tugs and barges is critical, as most barges are not self-propelled and must rely on the skilled operation of a tug or tugs for propulsion. At Merrimac...

Video How Stabilisers Reduce A Ship's Roll

published on 4 July 2019

Stabilisers are used to reduce the amount of roll experienced by large ships.
In this video, we look at a few different stabilisation techniques. We investigate how different methods work and how successful they are at reducing a roll.

Article Investigation of ship maneuvering with hydrodynamic effects between ship and bank

by Marine-Pilots.com - published on 12 July 2021

When a vessel navigates in confined waters, such as in a harbour or narrow channel, it is well known among experienced pilots that the ship handling is greatly affected by the hydrodynamic forces and moments acting between ship and bank or sidewall of the channel.
