PrefaceAcquisition of basic and advanced shiphandling skills is essential for safe and efficient operation of different tanker types. These skills have to be trained and excercised in realistic but extreme situations before boarding a ship. Theoretical hydrodynamic basics have to be transferred in applicable and practical knowledge to support captains, pilots and officers in decision making and shiphandling skills.
ObjectivesBasic skills: Basic shiphandling theory and hydrodynamics.
Advanced skills: Special functions and features. Practical shiphandling in complex and difficult situations.
  • Basic and advanced shiphandling theory.
  • Hydrodynamic effects: bank, suction, channel and vessel interaction.
  • Ship to ship interaction.
  • Calculation of external forces: wind, current, bollard pull.
  • Propulsion and resistance forces.
  • Operations and precautions in heavy seas.
  • Casualities and hull damages due to bending moments.
  • Tug handling.
