Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Ship Simulators are gaining acceptance as training and research tools useful for investigation of a variety of marine-related issues. Selection of the proper simulation model and approach to a particular problem, however, can significantly affect the cost, scope, and reliability of the research results. This paper considers the issues associated with the selection of the appropriate simulation program for a given task by reviewing three case studies of recent simulation research conducted to address practical navigation problems in the Gulf of Mexico.
