Due to increasing marine traffic intensity on inland waterways the interaction between ships and banks is becoming more of a problem. Bank effects make ship manoeuvring more difficult and rivers need to be protected against ship-induced currents and waves. This thesis contributes to the development of a new method that simulates these ship-bank...
