Tropical Cyclones Avoidance in Ocean Navigation - Safety of Navigation and Some Economical Aspects
1 Maritime University of Szczecin, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: Based upon the true voyages various methods of avoidance maneuver determination in ship - cyclone encounter situations were presented. The goal was to find the economically optimal solution (minimum fuel consumption, maintaining the voyage schedule) while at the same time not to exceed an acceptable weather risk level.
