Abstract : Ship motions can induce seasickness. Especially the vertical movements with frequencies below 1 Hz are very provocative. This report gives a summary and a description of a computer-implementation of a model formulated by McCauley et al. C1976). and a model by Griffin (1990), to predict the percentage of sick people given a motion time history.
