Port Manoeuvres

  22 - 26 May, 2022, Glasgow, UK


The 6th MASHCON conference will be held in Glasgow from 22 to 26 May 2022 and will have a non-exclusive focus on port manoeuvres.

Several shallow and confined water challenges are present in ports. A lot of these manoeuvres occur in the vicinity of moored ships, leading to passing ship effects on moored ships.

The 6th MASHCON conference is organized jointly by the University of Strathclyde, Ghent University and Flanders Hydraulics Research.

To open a joined research effort on the validation and verification of the different research methods, the Knowledge Centre Manoeuvring in Shallow and Confined Water has selected model test data which were obtained during the PESCA (Passing Effects in Shallow and Confined Areas) captive model test program, which was executed in the Towing Tank for Manoeuvres in Confined Water at Flanders Hydraulics Research. The captive model tests present results with the KCS as passing ship and a Neo-Panamax container carrier and an Aframax tanker as moored ships. The benchmark data and accompanying explanatory paper are available upon simple request for interested parties and in particular for researchers wishing to validate numerical tools.
