MODEL EXPERIMENTS OF SHIP CAPSIZE IN ASTERN SEAS

Capsizing experiments were carried out in both long-crested irregular and short-crested irregular waves. A self-propelled model of a purse seiner and of a container ship ran with auto pilots in following and quartering waves. To examine drafts of operational guidance recently proposed to the IMO, dangerous conditions in ship speed and heading angle were identified. The experimental results demonstrated the effects of short-crested waves on capsize in following and quartering waves. The effects of group waves were also discussed.
