Simplified Vector Approach for POD forces – samples and limitations


published on 23 February 2022 313 -

Found on YouTube. Created by "ISSIMS - Innovative Ship Simulation". Originally published on 2022-02-16.
This movie belongs to the operation of ships with POD propellers and discusses the approach for using a vector model from only the pods’ thrust forces as resulting force to imagine the potential effect of the pods on manoeuvring motion. This simplification neglects the effect of e.g. of propeller interference to the ship structure and the other pods as well as the rudder effect of the pod structure even with no thrust in passive mode. Numerous samples of manoeuvres with one or two pods in typical IN-OUT or TOE-IN configurations will be demonstrated with the SAMMON planning tool to show where the simplified approach is working or other effects need to be considered additionally.

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...

Article Houston Pilots Practice Part Art, Part Science in Guiding Ships to Port

published on 11 November 2020

Maritime pilots trace the roots of their profession back to the ancient Greeks and Romans when incoming ship captains employed experienced local fisherman to guide their merchant vessels safely into port. It’s a legacy of skill, strength, and sharp wits, and our Houston Pilots (“Pilots”) have been meeting vessels at Galveston’s bar to carry on these proud traditions for just shy of 100 years.
