• Discuss the implications of ship stability in design and operation.
• Introduce the concepts of dynamic stability in terms of case studies including relevant regulations.
• Discuss the implications for very large angle stability.
• Illustrate real solutions of general arrangement and accommodation design for different types of vessels.
• Introduce the physical phenomena, basic fluid mechanics and relevant theory of ship resistance.
• Introduce the numerical and experimental techniques used to estimate hull resistance.
• Introduce physical model testing, full-scale trials and empirical methods used in relation to ship resistance.
• Explore the methods adopted for estimating the resistance in the preliminary design stage.
Outline Of Syllabus
To achieve the aims of this module the following topics will be covered:
- Relationship of principle parameters to displacement and stability; Static stability including the presentation of heeling lever arms; energy methods and dynamic stability;
standard stability cases: the loll ship, wind heeling and crane ships.
- Ballast and form stability;
stability at all angles of heel (up to 180 degrees) and influence of geometry on static stability curve;
stability in extreme conditions of lifeboats, yachts and multihulls;
stability evaluation for small craft.
- The general arrangement layout and accommodation block for vessels; considering regulatory influences on accommodation.
- Flow around a submerged body; various methods of estimation resistance including empirical, experimental, standard series and an introduction to numerical approach.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Conceptual ideas delivered in lectures (IKO1-09). Formative numerical examples set and subsequently reviewed in lectures (ISO1-8) .The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
|Report||1||M||20||Resistance coursework. Taking no longer than 10 hours|
Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The written examination will assess both the breadth of knowledge, written communication, literacy and ability to perform related calculations (IKO1-09 and ISO1-8). The ability to undertake graphical analysis and evaluation of numerical questions, literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking with regards to ship stability, resistance and the concept of accommodation design are assessed. The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
Semester 1 Study Abroad students would be required to sit an alternative examination in the December examination period.
