Stability Criteria - Present Status and Perspectives of Improvement
1 Foundation for Safety of Navigation and Environment Protection, Iława, Poland
ABSTRACT: Short historical development and present status of stability criteria is presented. Current work of the International Maritime Organisation on second generation stability criteria is critically assessed showing the advantages and week points of the project. Perspectives for improvement of the safety against stability failure are discussed, including risk assessment methods and goal oriented approach to stability problems.
