The Author (of Basrah University, Iraq) examines the variability of the main parameters affecting the reserve of dynamical stability, with particular emphasis on the calculation of the risk of capsizing. Some major assumptions have had to be made (these are explained), but the following main conclusions are generally valid: (1) The probability of capsizing is greatly influenced by initial stability and the shape of the statical stability curve. (2) Deficient initial stability adversely affects dynamical stability. (3) Stability criteria should be treated stochastically. (4) Much work is needed to determine the effects of inertia, friction, and hydrodynamic forces on dynamical stability. (5) Statistical data are needed on the variabilities of parameters affecting the reserve of dynamical stability.
