Stern-First Method for POD Ships –Practical samples starting with Twin screw followed by POD ships

Practical samples for manoeuvres for ships going astern - as Stern-First-Method SFM. Introduction using as sample from the Master Thesis by Karel Wiegert for an arrival manoeuvre of a cruise vessel in Southampton port with a Twin-screw vessel under strong current. The same manoeuvre with the same ship model was used to show the advantage of Fast Time Simulation FTS using the SAMMON Planning Tool. This goes much faster than the manoeuvres in the real time simulator - and it can even be edited for discussing alternatives or optimisation purposes. The last sample is the arrival manoeuvre in the Port of Rostock with a POD ships under strong Wind. It could be demonstrated that with going stern first the manoeuvre can be much more effective - faster and even possible for higher wind speeds.
This demonstrates the advantage of a POD acting with SFM now at the fore end of the ship seen in the direction of motion and working directly against the wind - This enables smaller drift angle, specifically if the bow thruster at the other end supports holding the ship against the wind.
The final sample is sort of provocative - showing a movie with departure manoeuvres of many ships as a "Port Miami Fashion Show" where the idea came to me why these ships are not immediately leaving the port directly with stern first - in contrast to go first into the harbour to turn the ship and then heading to the open sea…

Video Fast Time Simulation of manoeuvres - SAMMON

published on 24 November 2020

This video shows the underlying principles of the SAMMON software tools based on Fast Time Simulation of manoeuvres. It describes very shortly some of the features for manoeuvring planning and conning / monitoring with danymic prediction which are shown in more detail in the other movies on this channel.

Video Ship Pilot Training - Harbour Pilot Simulator

published on 24 September 2020

A maritime pilot, marine pilot, harbor pilot, port pilot, ship pilot, bar pilot, or simply pilot, is a mariner who maneuvers ships through dangerous or congested waters, such as harbors or river mouths. They are navigational experts possessing knowledge of the particular waterway such as its depth, currents, and hazards, as well as being experts in handling ships of all types and sizes. A Maritime pilot is an expert ship handler who is licensed or authorized by a recognized pilotage...

Video Ship handling - Scenario 01: Berthing port side alongside in calm conditions

published on 13 October 2020

Maneuvering simulation in scenario of berthing port side to a quay without current, wind, wave. This scenario utilizes the characteristics of the right-handed propeller for docking a ship. With a right-handed propeller, when reversing engines, the effects of transversal force will swing the ship stern to the port side.

Video Wind Impact on Ships Turning Motion

published on 20 January 2021

This video complements the earlier demonstration of wind effect on straight track and shows now wind effect on turning circles. It can be seen that during a turn under strong wind the ship reduces turning when it comes close to equilibrium on straight track - if the Wind-to-ship speed ratio is big enough then the ship even goes straight instead of turning. This is shown for three samples for Head, Stern wind and Beam wind. The turning can be increased if the ratio of Wind speed-to-ship...
