    In order to improve the formulation of moored-passing ship interaction forces and moments in the mathematical model of a ship maneuvering simulator, a comprehensive captive model test program was carried out and a theoretical calculation method was developed. At present, semiempirical approaches, resulting in an estimation of forces and moments in the horizontal plane caused by hydrodynamic interaction on a moored ship due to a passing ship, are not available in literature. The present research intends to enhance the theoretical approach by validating the calculated peak forces and moments with experimental data. The numerical method is subsequently applied to generate a systematic database for the development of a new set of generic formulae for estimating the effect of passing vessels on moored ships in the equations of motion for surge, sway, and yaw applied in maneuvering and mooring simulators.
