Abstract
    For a better understanding of the hydrodynamic phenomena involved in ship to ship interaction during cargo transfer the research project entitled “Investigating hydrodynamic aspects and control strategies for ship-to-ship operations” has been initiated. In the frame of this project more than two thousand captive model tests were carried out in 2008 [1] in the Towing tank for manoeuvres in shallow water (co-operation Flanders Hydraulics Research – Ghent University) in Antwerp, Belgium. During these tests a scale model of a VLCC was attached to the main frame of the towing carriage while a model of an Aframax tanker was attached to the computer controlled planar motion carriage. Forces, moments and positions were measured on both models.
    The current paper analyses the extensive model test data and the influence of different parameters on the manoeuvre. For training purposes with a ship manoeuvring simulator a mathematical model for lightering operations is proposed based upon [2].
