Approximate Method of Calculating Forces on Rudder During Ship Sailing on a Shipping Route
1 West Pomeranian University of Technology, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: Service speed of a ship in real weather conditions is a basic design parameter. Forecasting of this speed at preliminary design stage is made difficult by the lack of simple but at the same accurate models of forces acting upon a ship sailing on a preset shipping route. The article presents a model for calculating forces and moment on plane rudder, useful for forecasting of ship service speed at preliminary stages of ship design.
