Course Stability under wind - advice for various conditions


by Knud Benedict - published on 7 March 2022 251 -

Found on YouTube. Created by "ISSIMS - Innovative Ship Simulation". Originally published on 2021-01-29.
This movie reveals some practical insight into regions of course stable / unstable conditions under wind. And I dare to say you can get some insight into other stability types and analogies, too!
The details are:
- Introduction of stability - using a lemon in a kitchen bowl
- comparison with cargo / cross stability / yaw stability
- Definition of course stability under wind
- Regions of stability and the relation with positive or negative slope on characteristic wind curves for rudder.
Respective samples will be given for ships behaviour in stable (e.g. beam wind ) and unstable (e.g. head & stern wind) conditions. And conclusions will be drawn from ship stability up to our Earth...
I hope you enjoy and give your thumbs up or even to follow this ISSIMS Youtube channel!

Opinion A Corrected Version on Positioning of Pivot Point

by Capt. Santosha K. Nayak - published on 18 November 2020

Understanding the fundamentals of the pivot point is highly required for understanding the alteration of the courses. Pivot point is an imaginary point on the vessel which turns on a circular path on the perimeter of vessel’s turning circle when the vessel makes a turn. The knowledge about the position of the pivot point in a manoeuvring situation provides the ship handler with the information on the geometry of motion of the ship.
