Aims

• 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.
