HELP NEEDED: Link between Gross Tonnage and Deceleration
I am a final year undergraduate from the National University of Singapore, majoring in Civil Engineering. I am doing some research for my Final Year Project, which requires the information described in the title.
Basically, I am looking to value-add to existing ship domain models, by introducing the element of deceleration when making speed/course changes during any point of the vessel’s course. This would of course involve certain key terms like advance/transfer, ship’s tactical diameter etc. I earnestly seek advise and help from any one who is able to direct me to the relevant information (maybe send me results from sea trials conducted for various ships?), and also please feel free to give me directions on how I can improve on my thesis! Thank you!
