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...

This paper presents an effective autonomous follow-the-leader strategy for Azimuthal Stern Drive vessels. The control logic has been investigated from a theoretical point of view. A line-of-sight algorithm is exploited to ensure yaw-check ability, while a speed-check feature is implemented to track the velocity of the target along the path....

Over the past years tugs are evolving to more compact designs equipped with large power installations. This inherently increases the risk of accidents, demanding a more reliable prediction of the tug’s dynamical behaviour in critical situations. To capture the dynamic behaviour of a tug, a time domain simulation tool has been developed and used...

Maritime transport covers about 90%of world trade and is seen as one of the most cost-effective way of transporting goods. In order to safely accommodate vessels calling into ports, tugs are operated to assist various sized vessels with navigating, manoeuvring and berthing. Competition within the ship handling market has always been fierce....

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...

Damen has grown to a worldwide market leader in tugs with their formula of designing and manufacturing standardized ships. One of the current developments is the change process from conventional product development with a project-oriented approach to a more configuration oriented development with a product oriented approach. From a demand to...
