Simplified Method for Estimating Maximum Ship's Draught when Navigating in Shallow Water on the South of Stolpe Bank in the Aspect of the Vessels with Maximum Dimensions and Draught
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
ABSTRACT: This paper considers analysis of maximum draught of a merchant vessel, which can maintain safety of navigation in different exterior condition (average and extreme) on shallow water in Stolpe gutter and keep required under keel clearance, i.e. navigational reserve of depth. To depict maximum draught of a vessel we use practical method which incorporates risk of navigational and model of ship's domain. Results are compared with guidelines published by Decree of Minister of Transport and Maritime Economy from 01.06.1998 about technical conditions, which should be met by hydro mechanical sea structure, which operate vessels with the given particulars.
