Abstract

Ship's manoeuvring duration as a criterion of navigation safety within VTS areas J. Guziewicz Szczecin Maritime University, 70-500 Szczecin, Waly Chrobrego 7, Poland Abstract The paper presents simulation research to determine ship's manoeuvring duration within restricted water area. Ship's manoeuvring duration has important influence for decision-makers (operators) of Vessel Traffic Services (VTS). The data of simulation research of ship approaching to berth in port of Police have been used to carried on presented investigation. Paper presents also manoeuvring duration analysis due to different factors influence. 1 Introduction Growing traffic intensity on water areas influences for decreasing of navigation safety level. This phenomenon is inevitable and observed during last years. It is particularly visible within restricted water areas as port approaches, fairways, and port basins. One of methods to improve this situation is co-ordination and ships' traffic management wit
