This paper presents a set of formulae to evaluate capsizing probability of a ship in both beam wind and waves based on a piece-wise linear approximation of roll restoring moment with and without simplifications as an extension of the work by Belenky (1993). The new simplified formula is also proposed on the basis of stochastic properties of roll motion near the angle of vanishing stability. These formulae are applied to a car carrier having a large windage area. As a result, it was pointed out… CONTINUE READING
