A Method for Forcing a Number of Motions or Rotations in 6 Degrees of Freedom Ship Simulators

  • General Medicine

In this paper, a method is introduced which enables the forcing of any degrees of freedom in 6 DoFs ship simulator. It is based on the introduction of an extra force in the equation of motion of the ship and on the forcing of the second derivatives of the forced degrees of freedom rather than the forced degrees of freedom themselves. The method is explicit which makes it easy to implement in existing software. Examples of its application to oblique towing tests and forced heading in wind and waves are presented.
