State of the art document on Validation of simulation models for ship manoeuvring
MetadataShow full item record
- SINTEF Ocean 
This memo contains a review of previous work on the topic validation of simulation models for ship manoeuvring. In addition, some papers describing verification, validation and accreditation in general are reviewed. Even though the concepts of verification and validation often are used in discussions of simulator fidelity no one in the maritime simulation community has come up with a good description of how to validate shiphandling simulation models. A draft version of the memo was circulated for comments by project partners. Comments received by 20th June 2014 were included in the August 2014 version of the document. This final version has been prepared to include the outcomes from the 27th ITTC held in Copenhagen August 2014 and the SIMMAN 2014 workshop in December 2014.
