The pohysical principles of hydrostatic stability for floating systems were first pronounced by ARCHIMEDES in antiquity, although his demonstration examples were limited to simple geometrical shapes. The assessment of stability properties of a ship of arbitrary shape at the design stage became practically feasible only about two millennia later after the advent of infinitesimal calculus and analysis. The modern theory of hydrostatic stability of ships was founded independently and almost… Expand
