This paper was originally prepared to provide discussion material for a proposed senior-level course in advanced stability considerations at the University of Michigan. The author has since revised and restructured the paper. The theory and history underlying existing intact stability criteria based on initial GM, righting moment balance and righting energy balance are discussed. Application of these assessment methods is shown and the critical weaknesses of each are addressed. Examples are drawn from current U.S. Coast Guard and IMCO requirements.
