Abstract
    This article presents the formulation of the 6 DOF manoeuvring model in calm water for ships with conventional propulsion and steering (1 fixed propeller, 1 stock rudder) as it is used on the ship manoeuvring simulators at Flanders Hydraulics Research (FHR). The coefficients are determined based on the results of captive model tests carried out in the Towing Tank for Manoeuvres in Shallow Water at FHR (co-operation with Ghent University). In this article the benchmark ship KVLCC2 is used as an example for discussion, based on the tests that were carried out at full draft and water depths of 180%, 130% and 120% of the draft. Fast time simulations have been carried out based on the developed manoeuvring model and the trajectories in 6 DOF are compared with the SIMMAN 2014 benchmark manoeuvres.
