AbstractIn the paper a new procedure is described which relies on a direct application of stability criteria to the generalized configuration (defined in terms of absolute and relative motions) of the vessel. The procedure relates the generalized configuration to a set of control parameters which are regulated by the designer and operator of the vessel, and provides a unified approach to problems of intact and damage stability. Dynamic effects of the interaction between the vessel and environment are explicity taken into account and can be evaluated either by means of model tests or through a numerical simulation. The procedure is therefore entirely rational and can be applied at various levels of advancement.
