A numerical program for time-domain calculations of the manoeuvring behaviour in regular waves is presented. The program is based on frequency-dependent coefficients, transfered to time-domain by using the impulse response function. Memory effects are included by using the convolution integral. Nonlinear effects are accounted for by adjusting the mass, the damping, and the restoring data to the instantaneous floating condition. The equations of motion are solved in six degrees of freedom. The forces of the manoeuvring motion are calculated with the nonlinear slender-body theory. The resistance, propulsion and rudder forces follow from semi-empirical procedures. For the wave excitation, Froude-Krylov and diffraction forces are regarded. A validation of the described procedure is performed for manoeuvring in calm water and straight-ahead motion in regular head waves.
