This paper summarises the findings of research conducted on the intact stability of ships, based on the mathematical theory of the stability of motion. In order to gain a better physical insight into the problem, a qualitative analysis of capsizing phenomena is made and the deficiencies of the existing criteria are illustrated. The results of the research are presented in the form of a new criterion. The theory and other necessary background knowledge are given in appendices. The criterion is applied to the prediction of capsizing of MT Edith Terkol. Limitations of the new criteria are mentioned and the need for further research is emphasised.
