Abstract : A computer model which mathematically simulates the ship's movement in defined waterways is described. Volume 1 presents the capabilities and usefulness for ship traffic lane selection, alternate route selection, and safety analysis. The analytic development of the equations of motion and the collision and grounding probability analysis used in the computer program are also presented. Volume 2 of the report consists of a complete User's Manual. Volume 3 is a self-contained programmers' manual.
