This study aims to research the prediction of ship’s inertial stopping distance. Accurate prediction of a ship’s inertial stopping distance helps the duty officers to make the collision avoidance decisions effectively. In this study ship’s inertial stopping distance is calculated using the ALE (Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian) algorithm implemented in the FLUENT code. Firstly, a method for predicting the inertial stopping distance of a floating body based on the FLUENT code is established. Then, the results calculated by the method are compared with those obtained from the empirical formulae and the physical model tests. The comparison result indicates that the proposed method is robust and can be used effectively to predict the ship’s inertial stopping distance.
