Considerations Regarding Ship's Stability Loss in Severe Sea Conditions and the Impact on Safety of Navigation

The paper presents the importance of a ship’s intact stability. It is evident the factors that contribute to the correlation between a ship’s stability with the safety of a ship and the safety of navigation. Ship stability failure is presented as a threat to the safety of navigation. This aspect is presented in the form of casualties involved in the loss of ship stability in severe sea conditions. This is in order to emphasize the causes that lead to ship stability loss. A study of various ship stability casualties in heavy weather conditions is presented and the causes are analysed. The actual intact ship stability criteria are analysed and the importance of a new generation of stability criteria for preventing ship stability loss in severe sea conditions is highlighted.
