Abstract

Restricted water may be defined as narrow channels or canals, waterway with vertical or over changing banks, or areas that include piers and breakwater. Obviously, most restricted water includes shallow water, and many include significant current and tide. All ships are required to be directionally controllable in the horizontal plane so that they can proceed on a straight path, turn or take other avoiding actions as may be dictated by the operational situation. They must further be capable of doing this consistently and reliably not only in calm water but also in waves or in conditions of strong wind. When a ship is proceeding in very shallow water or restricted water, its dynamic behavior is much different from that of the same ship proceeding in a wide stretch of deep water, because of changes in magnitude of the hydrodynamic forces and moments acting on it.
