Abstract
    The use of real-time simulations executed in a virtual inland waterway is increasing worldwide so that the accessibility of larger vessels in an existing waterway or chosen design vessels in a waterway to be constructed can be evaluated as close as possible to reality. The paper illustrates the opportunities of case by case decision through simulations for the Lys Diversion Canal connecting the river Seine in France with the river Scheldt in the Netherlands and Belgium by comparing the proposed values from design guidelines with the results of simulations. The design is based on possible meetings between a Vb push convoy at draft 1.8 m and a class IV motorship at 3.0 m.
