A new, revised edition of the book; it's content is based on the revised content of the original edition subjected to serious revision to correct the existing errors and also to update the text part. It comes quite clear from the thorough review of the established international/national practices of stability regulation that the development of the associated standards has been initially commenced by the leading experts working in the field of naval architecture. The ultimate objection of setting up the technical standards that pertain to the stability of the vessels was to ensure the safe operation of the vessels and eliminate the possibility of their capsizing. The materials presented in this volume are arranged in two big parts addressing the probabilistic approach to the ship stability and also risk assessment and dynamics of ship's capsizing. While the first part of the volume is mainly dedicated to the philosophy of the probabilistic evaluation of ship stability/safety plus of the loading and environmental conditions, its second part covers the equations for the non-linear motions of the ship, capsizing of the vessels in regular beam, quartering and following seas, different factors commonly affecting capsizing, motions in irregular seas, capsizing probability and other aspects. The appendix at the end of this volume has been fully dedicated to the Nechaev method.
