Study on Collision Avoidance of Head-on Situation in Restricted Visibility
In restricted visibility, great risk of collision exists between vessels formed a "head-on situation" geometrically. Started with the estimation on this particular situation and based on the requirements in COLREGS and applications of good seamanship, this paper explored the proper avoidance methods. Combined with the practice work at sea, the author collected some data about this special situation. By analyzing these data, the author found some defects in the practice work and gave some reasonable suggestions.
