Dynamic Component of Ship's Heeling Moment due to Sloshing vs. IMO IS-Code Recommendations
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
ABSTRACT: The comparative study of the dynamic component of heeling moment due to sloshing in ships? partly filled tanks is presented in the paper. The characteristics of heeling moment are obtained in the course of experimental tests and numerical simulations. The heeling moment is decomposed and the research is focused on the dynamic component resulting from liquid movement. The results of the research are compared to the computations performed in accordance with the IMO IS-Code recommendations. The need for amending of the intact ship stability assessment procedure is suggested.
