Abstract

How to manage a ship in economical performance and in structural safety at sea through her service life - this is the recent key interest for ship owners, operators, builders and other maritime party concerned. It will be a first step technically to gather data of ship condition at sea such as speed, motions and ship strength under sea environment for purpose of estimating and predicting a ship's behavior. Monitoring is one of the most effective and practical approach for that. The authors have investigated an advanced method to monitor ship responses for the above purpose, and carried out more than one-year field test by using a container ship of 4800 TEU with installation of the proposed monitoring system. Different from a conventional full-scale measurement, the advanced monitoring
