Abstract
    Flanders Hydraulics Research (Antwerp, Belgium) belongs to the Mobility and Public Works Department of the Flemish Government, which is responsible for the access channels to the Flemish seaports. Therefore, one of the main research topics concerns the behaviour of ships in shallow and confined water. As model testing is considered to be the most reliable method to acquire knowledge on this topic, in particular data required for developing mathematical models for manoeuvring simulation, the Towing Tank for Manoeuvres in Shallow Water (co-operation Flanders Hydraulics Research – Ghent University) was built in 1992-1993. The towing tank (useful length 68 m, width 7 m, adjustable water depth < 0.5 m) is equipped with a planar motion carriage, a wave generator and auxiliary devices for ship-ship interaction tests. A short overview of the infrastructure will be given, followed by a more detailed description of specific features that have been introduced to improve the quality and the efficiency of the testing facility, or to study specific effects. In particular, attention will be paid to ship-bank and ship-ship interaction test setups, automatic operation, geometric accuracy, and free running model test technology.
