Abstract
    Based on comprehensive captive model tests, executed in the towing tank of Flanders Hydraulics Research (FHR), mathematical manoeuvring models for inland vessels of 110 m x 11.4 m and 85 m x 9.5 m were derived. Both manoeuvring models were extensively applied in real-time simulation studies to design inland waterways and constructions.

    In order to validate the mathematical manoeuvring model FHR performed full scale measurements on the inland tanker MT Elise with a length of 105 m, a beam of 9.5 m and a draft of 2.6 m. The manoeuvring behaviour of the MT Elise was compared to the available manoeuvring models by means of both free running and captive replay (fast-time) simulations.

    From captive replay simulations the ship-to-ship interaction forces during head-on encounters performed during the full scale testing, could be estimated.
