Abstract
    In the frame of an optimisation strategy for the maintenance dredging works for the port of Zeebrugge, systematic series of captive manoeuvring tests with ship models are being carried out. The main purpose is to investigate the effect on a ship’s controllability of a mud layer covering the bottom of a navigation area. An overview of the so-called nautical bottom problem is given. A detailed mathematical manoeuvring model has been developed in order to perform fast-time and real-time simulation runs. Results of simulated standard manoeuvres are discussed in relationship with the internal wave pattern observed in the mud-water interface.
