Abstract
    This paper presents a first description and analysis of a series of captive force measureaents and "free-response" trajectory tests, which have been performed with a tanker model, moving along long and short side wall banks and platform shallows, and off-set from the centre-line of a dredged channel. The results from the measurements or lateral force and yawing moment are displayed in various graphs, and they are compared with calculations according to known theories. The ultimate aim of the project is the formulation of an analytical model, which will simulate the "bank effects" experienced, and which, in a particular trial case, will make it possible to predict the free response of the model from the forces measured at the captive tests.
