Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Calm water manoeuvring simulations are commonly used at the initial design stage as they provide useful an practical insight concerning ship's manoeuvrability and compliance with the relevant IMO criteria. In this paper the authors present ELIGMOS; a time-domain numerical code utilizing a 3-DOF manoeuvring model based on the MMG method. For the validation of the code's predictions, a comparison with the experimental results on the turning ability of S-175 has been conducted. The paper presents also the investigation performed regarding the accuracy of certain empirical formulas for the derivation of the manoeuvring derivatives is also investigated, especially for the case of shallow water where experimental data and results remain scarce. The code is written in C++ programming language, adopting a modular approach for the calculation of external forces and moment (i.e. hydrodynamic hull, rudder and propeller) which allows future enhancements with the introduction of additional terms.
