Abstract : The study investigates the maneuvering of ships involved in the replenishment at sea operation under calm water conditions. Two sets of linear differential equations of motion of a ship in three degrees of freedom are implemented for an analog-digital simulation (hybrid operation). Mainly a two phase hybrid simulation is carried out. (Modified author abstract)
