MODIFIED STABILITY ANALYSIS OF A SURFACE SHIP
By means of a functional analysis, time history effects may be incorporated in the representation of hydrodynamic actions in the equations of horizontal motion. The linear sway and yaw equations of motion become integro- differential in form and give rise to a characteristic equation governing directional stability which does not have the simple form which is found in an "instantaneous fluid action" theory couched in terms of derivatives. The nature of the relevant theory of stability and control is briefly examined.
