In this thesis, the influence of a combined drift angle, heeling angle and forward speed on the stability of a tug is researched. This is done to gain insight in the stability of tugs during escorting, where they operate at high drift angles, heeling angles and forward speed. The Damen RSD 2513 tug was simulated in steady CFD simulation using...

A novel follow-the-leader approach for azimuth-driven vessels is devised and experimentally tested in a model-scale outdoor scenario. The vessels are equipped with global navigation satellite and inertial navigation systems. A line-of-sight algorithm ensures the yaw-check ability of the follower vessel along the leader's path, while a speed...

DAMEN tugs can be found in nearly any port or terminal around the world. Operating in ports and terminals requires the tugs to be highly efficient in ship handling in order to quickly escort larger vessels. To predict the escort capabilities of a tug, DAMEN has developed the computer program DAMEN TUGSIM. Since the tool is becoming a decisive...
