Appliication of arificial neutral networks to assessment of ship manoeuvrability qualities


Warianty tytułu

Języki publikacji



This paper presents an attempt to applying neural networks for assessment of parameters of standard manoeuvrability tests, i.e. circulation test and zig-zag test. Methodological approach to application of neural networks as well as applied network structures and neuron activation functions are generally presented. Also, results of simulations performed by means of the elaborated networks are given in comparison with test cases selected at random. In order to analyze and reveal general trends, correlation relationships between results from network simulations and test cases were calculated and are presented as well
