Existing semi-empirical manoeuvring derivative prediction methods are modified to account for the hull-form changes required when fitting podded propulsion units to ships. Also, empirical methods are proposed for the prediction of the hydrodynamic stabilising and control forces of the pod units. The estimation tools are validated by comparison with captive and free-running model test results for four podded ship designs. Suitable preliminary design assessment methods are identified and applied, demonstrating excellent agreement between the estimated and the measured values.
