Classification of Parametric Rolling for Seagoing Ships and Percentage Distribution for Multiple Sea State Parameters
1 Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Lower Saxony, Oldenburg, Germany
ABSTRACT: In this paper, parametric rolling is divided into 5 heavy grades, establishing a classification for parametric rolling. This is achieved by a multi-parameter application in the simulations. For this purpose, parametric rolling, established criteria and the state of the art are considered and the results are summarized. Based on this, parametric rolling is successfully simulated using discrete simulation in MARIN [1]. Five heavy grades are introduced so different classes of parametric rolling can be distinguished. Furthermore, dependencies and probabilities for the occurrence of parametric roles in relation to the see are determined numerically. This will later be used in an assistance system on board ships to compute the prediction of parametric roll using an AI.
