Sea-Keeping & Manouvering Basin (MMC)

The objective of a Cussons Sea-keeping & Manouvering Basin MMC (Multi Motion Carriage) with integrated PMM (Planar Motion Mechanism) is to reproduce with high precision the horizontal motion of a ship-model being towed in a SMB following a prescribed trajectory. The collected force and moment data can then be used for deriving the coefficients used in the equations of motion, necessary for determining the manoeuvring characteristics of the ship-model. This provides the basis for superior predictions of the manoeuvring and course keeping qualities of surface ships and the evaluation and determination of design criteria, leading to the assessment of almost all aspects of ship manoeuvring.
