Optimal weather routing is one of best solution for ensuring safe operation of a ship with a with short passage time or minimum energy to avoid a certain excessive motion. This paper introduced the development of solution for safety and optimal weather routing a ship considering seakeeping performance based on model test result. This study introduced how to apply A* algorithm based on result of the seakeeping model test for determining the optimal ship routes. Seakeeping model test of 8600 TEU container ship was carried out in Changwon National University's seakeeping basin and its RAOs at various frequencies were used to predict the RMS motion values in irregular waves. The specially modelled path-cost function and the safety constraints were proposed for finding the optimal path of the ship. The comparison of ship performances estimated by great circle’s path and estimated optimal route during the voyage of the ship was investigated.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.12.03.10}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Container Ship, Seakeeping Performance, Seakeeping, Safe Ship, Safe Ship Considering, Optimal Weather Routing, Dynamic Programming (DP), Changwon National University (CWNU)} }
