Abstract
The maneuvering of naval monohull destroyers is considered, including directional stability and turning performance. Both strong turning performance and directional stability can be achieved for a naval destroyer. Adequate rudder size and placement of each rudder behind a propeller will contribute to maneuvering performance. Various methods are available for evaluating maneuvering performance of a proposed design. Accurate predictions of maneuvering motions require accurate hull maneuvering force coefficients, which are most commonly obtained from physical model tests. Computational fluid dynamics including viscous effects is still maturing as a technique for routine prediction of ship maneuvering performance.
