Abstract


Curved channel is one of the common plain river types. Its characteristics of natural curve and narrowness limit the scale of cornering, increase the difficulty of ship maneuvering and may cause a series of navigation safety problems. In this study, the process of ship's continuous turning in the curved channel is simulated basing a ship motion model. A series of limited parameters are proposed. The simulated ship's trajectory agrees well with the planned route in the curved channel.

Keywords


Continuous curved channel, K, T model, First-order ship maneuvering motion model.
