Poster #71

Research on the maneuverability of damaged vessels is required to fully comprehend how a vessel will respond to rudder commands and its behavior in straight line transits while in distress. More specifically, it is crucial to conduct this research from the perspective of a naval surface combatant. This study will test extreme trim angles up to the margin line to determine the extent to which trim impacts maneuverability.
