The purpose of the unit is to provide knowledge on ship seakeeping and ship manoeuvring. The details behind theoretical and experimental prediction methods are described and students use this information to predict and assess ship seakeeping and manoeuvring performance. Students undertake seakeeping experiments in the AMC Towing Tank to investigate the behaviour of a ship model in waves and to obtain benchmark data to assess selected prediction methods. This unit builds on the basic engineering knowledge gained in previous years.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
