DETUNING TANK--AN EFFECTIVE STABILIZING DEVICE

The concept of the detuning tank is advanced. The system is different from others in the sense that it does not try to compensate the action of the forces imparted by the sea to the floating body with properly phased compensating forces, but tries to prevent the sea from imparting the forces to the body. The effectiveness of such tanks has been experimentally verified in model basin motion tests and studies.
