Abstract
    A methodology is presented for evaluating the controllability of a ship navigating in a restricted channel by means of a hydrodynamic force analysis. This method is applied to assess the controllability of a container vessel in straight channel reaches and in bends in two practical cases. By comparing different initial conditions and bottom configurations the influence of different ship characteristics (main dimensions, draft, rudder and propeller characteristics), operational parameters (such as speed, propeller commands, and bank clearance), environmental parameters (such as current and tidal level), and channel characteristics (water depth, bank slope, bend radius) on this controllability can be evaluated. For estimating the components of the force analysis, use is made of results of captive model tests in shallow and restricted waters.
