Abstract
    The results of systematic ship model tests investigating the effect of lateral restrictions of the navigation area on manoeuvring behaviour are discussed, with special attention to hydrodynamic phenomena affecting a ship which is moving lateral/y towards a vertical boundary. A distinction is made between cushion forces, including interaction with effects due to low forward speed and propeller actions, acting on the ship in steady conditions, and non-stationary forces, affecting the ship's dynamics during acceleration and deceleration phases. The potential contribution of such test results to the development of an efficient mathematical model for simulating berthing manoeuvres is discussed.
