- General linear dynamic theory,
- Wave theory (regular and irregular waves),
- Wave loads,
- Uncoupled motion in waves,
- Motion in irregular waves,
- Coupled heave and pitch motion,
- Powering in a seaway,
- Motion reduction in waves,
- Motion criteria, operability estimates,
- Non-linearities in wave load estimates,

After completed the course,
- the student shall know the main principles for analysing a vessels sea-keeping performance and assessing a vessels manoeuvring capabilities.
- The student shall be able to perform sea-keeping and manoeuvring analyses of a ship by using a computer program like e.g. SHIPX.
- The student shall be able to evaluate the results from hydrodynamic analyses and/or model test to an extent where they can contribute to improve the sea-keeping or manoeuvring characteristics of a vessel.
- The student will have a general understanding of the motion of ships at sea and be familiar with the terminology used in relevant academic and professional discussions of sea-keeping or manoeuvring of a vessel.
