Settings / Barge


These settings apply to True-scale display of a composite or towed barge. Parameters are included for controlling the size of the barge and whether it is composite or towed.

With the composite option, the barge is simply placed directly in front of Own-Ship and remains fixed there.

When towed, you can select the length of the tow line and the method of simulation. The default is to assume the barge follows the path of Own-Ship. The other option is to assume the tow line remains straight. Neither case should be considered an accurate representation of the motion of the barge. Elements such as resistance of water, momentum, current, collision with Own-Ship/barge, etc are not simulated.

The depiction of the barge is not included in many elements of SEAiq, including:
