DAMAGE STABILITY MODEL EXPERIMENTS

The paper describes a series of experiments in waves with a flooded model of a typical passenger and vehicle ferry. The objective was to provide designers and approving authorities with data with which to assess ship safety in damaged conditions in a quantifiable manner relative to sea conditions. Safety in this context is not absolute, depending upon compliance with a regulation, but a continuous function related to environmental conditions. /Author/
