The Antwerp Port Authority is particularly interested in the investigation of specific cases of interaction between passing and moored vessels that take account of the specific situation in the harbour of Antwerp. To cope with different questions a captive manoeuvring test program has been carried out at the towing tank for manoeuvres in shallow water, for different under keel clearances and dock widths. The present paper will give an overview of the tests that have been carried out and will specifically discuss the effect of swinging versus passing and the effect of meeting vessels on the moored ships.
