People interested in contemporary ship stability are aware that luckily some significant progress has been attained in ship stability during last couple of decades. However, there are still some challenges that require proper input, such as the accurate prediction of the capsize dynamics and extreme motions of the vessels, both in intact conditions and damaged. Among such challenging areas we would also mention the probabilistic nature of the extreme events, various criteria reflecting both physics and operational safety of the vessels, and ways of providing all relevant technical information on the safe handling of ships. The present title is intended to give readers an exceptionally comprehensive and thorough review of all above stated issues by selecting the representative documents presented in the course of several international conferences and workshops on stability. The list of topics covered within this publication includes the stability criteria and intact ship stability, parametric roll and broaching-to, roll damping, non-linear dynamics and probabilistic assessment of capsizing, environmental modeling. design for the ship safety, naval vessel stability, application of the CFD, i.e. computational fluid dynamics, methods to the stability, and investigation of the accidents involving ship capsizing. In short, the book contains professional articles formally presented by the world leaders in the field of stability.
