Course-keeping with automatic control.
MetadataShow full item record
A ship in steering is considered as a physical mechanism that is forced by a rudder movement to produce a response. Emphasis is laid upon the relation between the forcing and the response, leaving aside any detailed consideration of the forces concerned. Course-Keeping with Automatic Control techniques is studied following this concept. Computer programs are developed to simulate different conditions. Interpretation of the results is made to evaluate the different methods used.
