Yaw Stability of Ships - Basic Principles by Knud Benedict


published on 18 November 2021 277 -

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.

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 Wind pure drift encounter - practical experiments for getting useful data

published on 18 October 2021

How to get information for wind & current limits to be potentially encountered by thrusters – or current? - this will be described in this movie:
- Measure Drift speed, due to beam wind with no propulsion;
- Measure drift speed using full thrusters
- Estimate wind & current limits to be potentially encountered by thrusters – or current...
- Finally there is a simple formula as Rule of Thumb: the transverse drift speed is about 7-8% of wind speed!

Video Rare 1865 Great Lakes Coast Pilot Restoration - Episode 1

published on 12 November 2020

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...

Article What is a SWASH pilot boat? What's the difference to the SWATH technology?

by Marine-Pilots.com - published on 5 June 2020

At the A&R shipyard in Germany, the successful principle of SWATH boats was further developed in 2013: The SWASH principle allows sea-going, smaller and more economical boats.

Article The magnetic north pole migration - What a Pilot should know

by Marine-Pilots.com - published on 22 February 2019

The Arctic magnetic pole does not move anymore. It runs, faster and faster. In recent years, even faster than expected. Therefore, geo-researchers have now had an unscheduled change to their world model and adjust their calculations, so that navigation with compass and other navigation aids such as a Pilot Plug, used by pilots around the world, continue to work.
