RATIONAL EXAMINATION OF STABILITY CRITERIA IN THE LIGHT OF CAPSIZING PROBABILITY

This paper describes a new procedure to examine stability criteria using capsizing probability. The capsizing probability is calculated by the methods proposed by one of the authors, and was validated with model and numerical experiments. Using these methods, the risk levels that are guaranteed by stability criteria are identified in the form of probability. Then, comparing these risk levels, it can be judged whether the stability criteria are effective or not. In some cases a guideline to improve criteria can be obtained. This procedure is applied to the IMO weather criteria, a weather criterion for a new ship type and a design criterion for a ship in following seas.
