Since, the operation of pusher-barge mainly concentrates on confined waters, there is a need to predict and analyze the manoeuvring characteristic of the system for a safe and acceptable performance. A time domain simulation programme was developed for this by: The goal of the study described was, therefore, the investigation of the maneuvering performance of a typical river flotilla in a restricted waterway channel. The study involved extensive model tests of and 6-barge tows in both deep and shallow waters; development of an identification technique for predicting tow hydrodynamic coefficients; and simulations of tow behavior and channel alterations. River stage prediction based on a distributed support vector regression Article (PDF Available) in Journal of Hydrology (1) August with Reads How we measure 'reads'.   The maneuvering characteristics of a large container ship with twin propellers and twin rudders were investigated using the horizontal planar motion mechanism (HPMM) test and computer simulation. A mathematical model for maneuvering motion with four degrees of freedom (DOF) for twin-propeller and twin-rudder systems was developed and included the effects of roll by:

Hence, this book is intended for the business student (and practitioner) of data mining tech-niques, and its goal is threefold: 1. To provide both a theoretical and practical understanding of the key methods of classiflcation, prediction, reduction and exploration that are at the heart of data mining; 2.
