A Study on the Motion Sickness Incidence According to the Position in the Ship

Dong Hyup Youn and Chung Hwan Park
Abstract—As the sea condition becomes rough, the crew and passengers on board are experiencing stress and motion sickness. Particularly, in the case of motion sickness, the ability to perform tasks falls sharply, and it takes considerable time to recover. In this study, the motion performance of wave in KVLCC2 was evaluated, and the vertical acceleration component of each ship’s position in the actual sea environment condition was calculated by hull motion calculation method. The vertical acceleration spectrum was used to indicate the degree of motion sickness according to the change of velocity of KVLCC2. Motions sickness incidence (MSI) calculation was performed with 0 knots, 5 knots, 10 knots, 15 knots, 20 knots, and 25 knots. As a result, weights of vertical acceleration were higher in order, and higher in pitching than in rolling.

Index Terms—KVLCC2, MSI, vertical acceleration.
