Abstract

In the paper the maneuvering characteristics of the trimaran ship including the turning circle test and zig-zag test with respect to different side-hull arrangements are studied. The effects of the different side-hull arrangement on the maneuvering characteristics are deeply investigated. The maneuvering hydrodynamic derivatives of the trimaran ship with the different side-hull arrangement are measured by using the PMM technique and substituted into equations of maneuvering motion to simulate the turning circle test and the zig-zag test. The present results reveal that the arrangements with a little forward and suitable medium transverse distance have the better maneuvering characteristics.
