The latest version of MANSIM has been released.
Since its first release on August 2019, Maneuvering Simulation Laboratory (MANSIM) freeware code has reached many people across 11 different countries from all around the world. The first released version MANSIM v1.05 has attracted researchers working on ship motions and was downloaded by 14 different universities/institutes in a short time frame of 8 months. In the meanwhile, we developed the code to bring new features in MANSIM v2.01. These include four degree-of-freedom (4DOF) maneuvering models and basic control mechanisms for controlling ship motions.
What's new on MANSIM v2.01:
We hope you to have a pleasant experience with the new version of the code.Download now
"Theoretical background and application of MANSIM for ship maneuvering simulations"

"System-based prediction of maneuvering performance of twin-propeller and twin-rudder ship using a modular mathematical model"
Our recent study has been published in Applied Ocean Research (January 2019).Read more
MANSIM Lab has a small core team based in Istanbul Technical University, Turkey.
We perform research on several aspects of ship maneuvering in terms of computational investigation and mathematical modelling. Our code is continuously developed to cover new aspects of ship maneuvering and the final aim of this journey is to achieve a practical simulation program for fully-autonomous ships.
