Abstract
    A brief summary of practical methods for calculating the hydrodynamic horizontal forces and yaw moments acting on a manoeuvring ship in shallow and restricted water is given, with the emphasis on the very shallow water range (water depth to draft ratio less than 1.2), including ship-bank and ship-ship interaction effects. The main purpose is to provide background information for a discussion on the necessity of additional data for the development of reliable simulation models that are able to describe a ship's manoeuvring behaviour in (very) shallow and restricted navigation areas in a realistic way.
