Combined with the test data of 25[degrees] 15[degrees] zigzag manoeuvre of a KVLCC2 ship which was conducted in the Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA), the correlation coefficients of variables in (14) can be calculated, as listed in Table 2.
For periodically nonlinear motion such as zigzag manoeuvre or turning circle manoeuvring, the linear ramp signal like (26) works well [23]; for a linear motion such as oblique towing test, a nonlinear additional signal is more appropriate [54].

Another area of divergence is in the activity limitations placed on patients after repositioning manoeuvres.
Physical manoeuvres are performed primarily for treatment.
Objective: To compare the efficacy of Epley manoeuvre and Semont manoeuvre in the management of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
Patients in group-1 were treated by Epley manoeuvre and patients in group-2 were treated by Semont manoeuvre.
Epley and Semont manoeuvres both are equally effective for majority of patients with BPPV.
Objective: To compare the efficacy of Semont manoeuvre versus Epley manoeuvre in the management of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
The results of both the groups were compared on day 3, day 7 and day 30, which revealed that both the Semont and Epley manoeuvre are equally effective in treatment of BPPV.
