The paper presents a rational methodology for the simulation of the maneuvering ability of ships, while accounting for the vessel's maneuvering properties and the ensuing environmental and navigational conditions. In this context, the effect of different rudders and weather scenarios is demonstrated and a real ship to ship collision accident under adverse weather conditions has been simulated. The presented methodology can form the basis for a decision support tool for ship's navigation in adverse weather conditions and the assessment of ship's maneuvering devices.
