There are numerous tests that are recommended by the ITTC for assessing the maneuvering capabilities of a vessel. Some of these tests can be performed using CFD, saving valuable time and money. The propellers and thrusters are modelled in these maneuvering simulations, together with dynamic appendages such as rudders or ducts.
The manoeuvring tests that can readily be performed using maneuvering simulations, recommended by the ITTC in Recommended Procedures and Guidelines, Full Scale Manoeuvring Trials, are:
- 2.2.1 Turning Circle,
- 2.2.11 Initial Turning Test,
- 2.2.12 Accelerating Turning Test,
- 2.2.13 Thruster Test,
- 2.2.14 Crabbing Test.
