Course Stability under wind - advice for various conditions


by Knud Benedict - published on 7 March 2022 228 -

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!

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.

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...
