PASSIVE ANTI-ROLL TANK DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
Assuming optimum tuning, the most effective tank will be that one situated as high as is feasible in the ship, and having as much for-and-aftlength as possible. However, restrictions, such as GM loss, tank weight, and location are important; also cost and fuel savings resulting from reduction in bilge keel size should not be overlooked. For each ship the tank design has to be selected to suit; however, the optimization program does give one the basic information upon which to make a selection.
