The influence of the block coefficient on the ship's behavior on its maneuvers in shalow waters having navigation restrictions
AbstractThe ships behave differently to maneuvers in shallow waters, but in general it is accepted that, in this situation, the ship’s maneuverability and vitality is affected by the appearance of the bottom effect – the SQUAT effect. There is an accumulation of factors which influence the behavior of the ship in the studied situation, and the combined influence of these factors usually determines the behavior when the SQUAT phenomenon appears. The most important of these is the coefficient (block coefficient), which is a constructive characteristic specific to each ship.The object of the present article is to present the relationship between the value of the bottom coefficient and the way in which the trim of the ship modifies when the SQUAT phenomenon takes place
