Authors: Tore Flobakk,
Affiliation: SINTEF
Reference: 1983, Vol 4, No 3, pp. 175-194.

Keywords: Parameter estimation, hydrodynamics, captive and free-running model testing

Abstract: Model tests performed at the Norwegian Hydrodynamic Laboratories (NHL), to identify ship manoeuvring equations, are described. Parameter estimation techniques are used to determine the mathematical model.
