Abstract

The target of on-going EU-FP7 project FAROS is to find links between ship design features and crew performance especially on RoPax vessels and tankers. This paper present studies of the influence of ship motions, vibrations and noise on ship's crew performance and well-being. Calculation procedures to determine novel concepts Motion Induced Sickness (MIS) and Motion Induced Interruption (MII) for a ship in given wave conditions and operation profile are presented. Motion limits for ship crew and influence of motions on crew performance and well-being are discussed. Mariners are interviewed on how ship motions, vibration and noise influence their performance on board. Interview results show that adaptation of mariners to ship motions is high and seasickness among experienced mariners is rare. It seems also that vibration and noise has seldom strong influence on performance during normal watch of mariners. However ship motions, vibration and noise may cause fatigue or interrupt demanding operations like maintenance on board the ship.
