The accessibility studies based on ship motion simulation allow for the assessment of manoeuvring operations safety for the new port designs and reconstructions of the existed infrastructure. Several factors can be used to determine safety of manoeuvring operations. The paper presents an approach to determine the operational reliability which can be included in an accessibility study to determine the best of the possible solutions with respect to the ship entrance into the harbour. The general reliability model has been proposed and an example of reliability of ship entrance into the Port of Gdynia is presented.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.10.04.10}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Ship Handling, Manoeuvring, Ship Motion Simulation, Reliability Assessment, Ship Entrance into the Port, Reliability Model, Port of Gdynia, Full Mission Simulator SimFlex} }
