Abstract:

The David W. Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center DTNSRDC conducted full-scale trials to gather tugship interaction forces developed by an advanced, right-angle drive tugboat TINA in maneuvering a tanker YUKON. The overall intent of these trials is to modify the tug effect subroutine at the Maritime Administration Computer Aided Operations Research Facility CAORF at Kings Point, New York by developing, from the full-scale trial data presented herein, percentage factors to discount nominal tug thrust under appropriate situations to approximate the effect of flow conditions around the tug propellers created by motion of the tug, or the position of the tug relative to the tanker.
