Abstract

Experiments with 1:50-scale models produced data on the horizontal force and the yawing moment exerted by a steady current on ships moored in shallow water. Data were obtained for one ship with various headings and for two ships arranged side by side in a beam current. The models were restrained by elastic lines simulating real moorings; for a single ship, rigid supports were also used. The experiments included brief investigations of the minimum flume width, turbulence, flow patterns, and flow-induced motions.
