Manoeuvring Simulation Methods Applied to Determine the Shape and Operational Condition of New Ports – Mielno Port Case Study
Keywords:Ship manoeuvring simulation, Safety of navigation, Port design, Breakwater optimization
This paper presents a complex method of establishment of optimum design of sea ports with regard to navigational safety. Real-time simulation method was implemented in the presented study. The limited task real-time simulation model was created together with characteristic ship models and environment. The paper presents several stages of the research, such as the designing of the model, planning of simulation experiments and statistical analysis of results, The results are used as design guidelines for the small Polish sea port of Mielno which is currently under development.
