Islam, M.Rafiqul and Islam, Md. Nazrul and Baree, Md. Sadiqul (2006) A study on dynamic interaction of ships while in speed. In: Advances In Marine Technology 2006. Penerbit UTM, Johor , pp. 41-58. ISBN 978-983-52-0546-0
As a vessel travels across the water surface, a variable pressure distribution develops along the length of vessel. The pressure rises at the bow and stern and drops along the midsection. These pressure gradients, in turn, generate a set of waves that propagate out from the vessel bow and another generally lower set of waves that propagate out from the vessel stern. The pressure distribution along the hull of a vessel significantly causes lateral forces and horizontal moments to act on the vessel when it passes another vessel or moves in close proximity to other structure or channel bank as because unsymmetrical flow occurs around the hulls. The interacting lateral forces and horizontal moments are complex; continually change while the ships are in the proximity of each other, and dependent on hull sizes, vessel speeds, directions, lateral separation; and water depth.
