ON STABILITY PERFORMANCE OF A CAPSIZED YACHT

In this paper, to clarify the stability characteristics of a flooded and capsized ship, the authors developed a computer program to calculate the restoring force. The program is validated using the results of experiments with a barge model. A full scale experiment of a capsized yacht is carried out to observe its restoration process to upright condition and the speed of flooding. On the basis of the experimental results, some calculations of the stability quality of the capsized yacht are carried out using the computer program.
