Maneuvering simulations of pusher–barge systems

  author={K. P. Kho},
Pusher–barge systems were studied in nine different confi gurations. Captive model tests were performed at the Hiroshima University Towing Tank and the hydrodynamic derivatives for the various confi gurations were obtained. At a service speed of 7 knots, pusher–barge systems with the same number of barges but arranged in a row (shorter length overall but with a larger breadth) require more power to operate than those that were arranged in a line. When the length overall increased, the tactical… CONTINUE READING
