    I'm a researcher from University of Calabria.
    We are now working on a drive ship simulator . The ship that will be used on the simulator is a Lexa Maersk Container Ship and it will be used to train on maneuver in a port. I'm looking for some mathematical model that describe the ship motion with respect to ship features, rudder angle, speed, the sea state etc etc...
    Of course,It would be even better to find some kind of software that could help me on that.
    I found this paper "The influence of some ship parameters on manoeuvrability studied at the design stage" , and it seems that could be useful but maybe is too much complex and I'm having trouble to calculate total coefficient method using Haltrop.
    Thank you.
