The Effect of Towline and Bridle on the Slewing Motion of Barge
Chol Yu, Sang-Min Lee
When a tug-barge navigates in the water, maneuvering ability of a tug is affected by the slewing motion of barge. Therefore it is necessary to decrease the slewing motion of a barge for safe towing work. We chose two different types of barge model and investigated their motion depending on the existence of bridle, towing speed and length of towline. The experiments are performed in the still water using the wire rope for the towline. A longer towline makes the heading angle smaller. The towing speed does not largely affect the turning of barge. Finally, it is noted that the bridle of a towing line decrease the slewing motion of barge more effectively.
Key Words: Towline;Barge;Heading angle;Slewing motion;Towing speed
