Description

This Excel sheet calculates the required Bollard Pull to tow a conventional ship shaped vessel.

It rigorously calculates all the forces on the vessel, viz.

1. Calm Water Resistance: It is calculated using the established Holtrop and Mennen formula

2. Wind resistance: Based on Wind Height and Shape coefficients from ABS MODU rules, and corrected for wind direction.

3. Wave Resistance: From DNV Rules for Marine Operations, and corrected for forward vessel speed using Faltinsen, 1990

4. Propeller resistance and Hawser resistance: From US Navy Towing Manual

Useful in Marine Operations. It can be used to predict the bollard pull to tow a vessel. The tug can be accordingly selected.

    Works fine, little bit difficult to enter all parameters, as some unknown beforehand, outcome indications are however in line with reality.
    Maybe useful to limit input a little bit, if possible and make the program more userfriendly.

    With all products there is full support, and updates
