This work describes the numerical simulation of a turning circle manoeuvre performed by the MOERI KVLCC2 induced by the rotation of the rudder. To this purpose, the Navier-Stokes equations are integrated, the hydrodynamical forces acting on the hull are computed and the hull is moved at each time step according to the rigid body equations. Because of the scarceness of experimental results for this kind of simulations, the validation of the proposed method is postponed to the oral presentation when the data from the SIM- MAN 2008 Workshop (http://www.simman2008.dk/) will be available.
