Abstract: Understanding of ship maneuverability and factors effecting to ship maneuverability is important to naval architectures and marine navigators. In ship control problems, the ship maneuvering characteristic must be considered before designing the controllers. With the development of science and technology, it allowed the studies of ship maneuvering to be performed in computation simulations. However, there are always the different results between computation simulation and the fact. For that purpose, this article presents an experiment to establish the quantitative relationship between metacentric height and ship maneuverability using scaled model ship.
Keywords: Ship maneuverability, Metacentric height, Ship model, Heeling angle,Turning circle.
