AN ALGORITHM OF PROBABILISTIC STABILITY ASSESSMENT AND STANDARDS

A logically completed algorithm is given for the probabilistic estimation of a vessel's stability. Two basic problems are considered: the choice of probabilistic criteria and the setting of standards for them. The main concepts of the probabilistic approach are determined (the accidental vectors of assumed situations and conditions of loading, risk function, and safety guarantee). The suggested algorithm of probabilistic estimation is applicable as a basis for estimation or regulation of any ship qualities the loss of which may cause a sudden and full loss of the vessel.
