ON THE DYNAMIC STABILITY OF A SWATH RESEARCH VESSEL IN FOLLOWING SEAS

The paper addresses the dynamic stability and seakeeping behaviour of a SWATH multipurpose research vessel designed specifically to meet the needs of various institutions in the Mediterranean area. The behaviour of the vessel, so-called SMURV, in head, oblique and following seas, has been studies systematically through alternative theoretical-numerical and experimental methods. On the basis of results of these studies, the stability and safety of SMURV is evaluated, considering its manifold operational profiles and the specific environmental conditions of the Mediterranean Sea.
