Technical Lecture 12 December 2017 – IMO 2nd Generation Intact Stability Assessment

Presented by Mr. David Blakesley, QINETIQ

With the advent of fast computational analysis, the routine assessment of dynamic stability criteria looks set to become standard practice within the design office. The second generation of the intact stability code, in development since 2002, looked to produce a set of probabilistic criteria in order to better understand and assess 5 dynamic stability failure modes using a progressively more concise series of vulnerability checks. The speakers here look to discuss the premise, application and usability of the code through the application to a Type 23 Frigate, and attempt to draw comparisons between existing static stability standards and these next generation quasi-static methods.
