Abstract:

In this paper, the coupling between the sea, the ship and humans is studied. In previous researches mathematical models of fast ships motions have been determined. In the literature there are models of human sickness and models of the sea. This knowledge about seasickness, waves and ship motion has been gathered. Using this information it is possible to extract some criteria for the captain maneuvering, for ship designers and for actuators engineering. Taking advantage of the models obtained, a study of seasickness prediction has been done, and some interesting results are presented.
