Determination of Dynamic Under Keel Clearance of Maneuvering Ship

The safety of navigation of a ship manoeuvring within port waters mainly depends on its under keel clearance (UKC). Mainly UKC depends on water level change, squatting of moving ship and heeling and wave response. The effect of these components will be determined currently than such UKC is called as dynamic under keel clearance. The paper presents an analysis of certain components of UKC to maximise of ship draft and thus to achieve the economic benefit to port and ships owner.
