Tools and Methodology

A Real-time Ship Bridge Simulator (MERMAID 500 model developed by MARIN-MSCN (The Netherlands)) was used. This tool is property of Siport21 and located in Madrid. This is the only privately-owned simulator of this kind in Spain. The dynamic response of the moored ship was simulated using the numerical model SHIP-MOORINGS developed by Alkyon (Hydraulic Consultancy & Research, The Netherlands).
