In support of a project to evaluate the dynamics of ship capsize, a method for predicting ship capsize risk has been developed. The method has been implemented using the FREDYN program. This memorandum examines the wind model used of FREDYN and presents a method for predicting capsize risk in waves and wind. A case study on a frigate illustrates the influence of wind collinear with waves on capsize risk. The appendices describe the subroutine version of FREDYN, the program FITHLIM used for computing capsize risk from capsize wave height. Sample computations are included.
