Collating evidence for a universal method of stability assessment or guidance

Deakin, Barry (2010) Collating evidence for a universal method of stability assessment or guidance The Transactions of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects Part A: International Journal of Maritime Engineering, 152, (Part A2 2101), A-85. (doi:10.3940/rina.ijme.2010.a2.175).

Record type: Article


This paper reviews two related projects conducted for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, and collates their findings with additional casualty data, in an attempt to promote a simple method of safety assessment. The method was developed by the author during research conducted for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. It was evaluated in a subsequent research project, where the recommendations were that it was not worthy of adoption or further development for regulatory purposes.

Contrary to that evaluation, the method has received supportive comments from a number of naval architects, and this paper is offered as a means of presenting it more widely to the industry. Individuals may wish to use the method to assess their own designs, or to provide some simple safety guidance to operators.
