One way to increase safety in the waterways is to ensure that ships have proper manoeuvrability. Evaluation of manoeuvring properties performed at an early stage of design can detect problems that later would be difficult to solve. To make such an analysis the numerical methods can be used. In the paper the numerical method to evaluate the ship manoeuvrability on the shallow water is presented. Additionally author shows the procedure of determining hydrodynamic coefficients on a basis of CFD calculation. The simulation results of inland ship was compared with experimental data.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), CFD Method, CFD Calculation, Safety at Sea, Ship Manoeuvrability, Numerical Methods, Shallow Water, Hydrodynamic Coefficients} }
