Abstract : This manual provides an introduction to the concept of mathematical ship maneuvering models and their roles in solving a variety of problems confronting designers, operators, and others concerned with ship maneuverability and safety. It serves as a guide to, and complements the use of, the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) Standardized Data Sheets which contain such mathematical maneuvering models and other associated data for specific ships.
